SANTIAGO, Chile — A new website for the Baha’i House of Worship in Santiago, Chile, has been opened (templo.bahai.cl,) in advance of the Temple’s inauguration in October. The beauty of the Temple’s design, which the architect, Siamak Hariri, has described as “embodied light“, is captured in the imagery and graphics throughout the site.
The new website highlights the central theme that underlies the purpose of Baha’i Houses of Worship: the union of worship and service. It also provides brief descriptions of how this theme is finding expression in activities that connect the Temple to the community that surrounds it.
This Temple will serve the entire South American continent, and is the last of the continental Baha’i Houses of Worship to be built. Several of the first national and local Baha’i Temples are now in the process of being built in countries around the world.
