One of the many great places I’ve seen in Chicago was the Baha’i House of Worship. My aunt’s friend, who also hailed from our hometown, wanted to show us around Chicago and she brought us to this magnificent place. We went to see the white temple in a sunny hot afternoon but they say the place looks different at sunset. Since we have plenty of places to go, we just went there for a visit. Below are the pictures:
We’re too tiny! But you can see me right away for I wore a red blouse and a denim skirt. Good thing this place is not super strict. As long as you go there for worship, then it’s fine =)
From Wikipedia: A Bahá’í House of Worship, sometimes referred to by its Arabic name of Mashriqu’l-Adhkár (“Dawning-place of the remembrances of God”), is the designation of a place of worship, or temple, of the Bahá’í Faith. The teachings of the religion envisage Houses of Worship being surrounded by a number of dependencies dedicated to social, humanitarian, educational, and scientific pursuits, although none has yet been built to such an extent.
By car: From Chicago, take Lake Shore Drive north to Sheridan Road. The temple is located just off of Sheridan Rd.
By public transport: Take Red Line El north to the termination point, then the Purple Line to its termination point. From the station, turn right on Linden Avenue and walk 2-3 blocks to the temple.
