Our group tour will begin at the Welcome Center (located just west of the Temple on Linden Avenue;  wheelchair accessible) at 2 pm.  After a brief introduction to the history and teachings of the Baha’i faith, our volunteer tour guide will lead us into the temple  (elevator access) for an architectural tour of a building that took more than 50 years to complete.  The building was financed entirely by Bahai from around the world and was dedicated in May of 1953.  Attendees are invited to tour the gardens on their own.  The gardens are made up of nine circular gardens, which are seasonally planted with native and global species. This tour is free. 

Videos will not be viewed during the tour but are provided here for you to watch at your leisure.
