“Beautiful and informative”
Reviewed September 5, 2010

The Baha'i House of Worship is a beautiful building that houses an auditorium; there are no corridors or rooms inside. The interior is remarkably designed, inviting you to look upward and inward. There is a meditative/prayerful atmosphere inside that is a welcoming respite. The outside of the House is just as beautiful. The architecture and the gardens also invite you to meditate and wonder. There was a gentleman the day we visited who was very helpful in explaining the spiritual significance of the architecture and the history of the religion. All of this was free. The neighborhood in which this House of Worship resides is a well-to-do community.

“Simply Beautiful”
Reviewed February 22, 2010

My son and I visited this beautiful House of Worship on our recent trip to Sydney. First on the Sunday morning for their service at 11am and then again on Monday evening for a devotional meeting. Although it is a Baha'i House of Worship it is open to people of all faiths and indeed no faith, and is a very peaceful and tranquil, stunning building set in beautiful grounds and the staff are all incredibly welcoming too. It has a very interesting visitor centre at the entrance and a book shop with an excellent selection of very interesting and varied books on a variety of faiths and interests. It is about 3/4 of an hour north of the city but well worth the drive. We would definitely go back again if in town.
