The most spiritual place around enveloping you in understated elegance and allowing you time for thoughtful meditation. Gardens are beautiful also and the individuals who work there are warm and very helpful.

Stopped here on a bicycle tour of the area and was glad I did. The building is very beautiful, all white with amazing detail. There's a museum in the basement that gives more info on the Bahai faith and you can sit upstairs in the sanctuary. They were having a "service" while we were there, but it was just two women taking turns reading scriptures. No one should be concerned about anyone trying to convert them or anything like that. The Bahai movement recognizes all faiths.

The temple is surrounded by gardens, which are worth taking time to explore, too. Unless you're really into this type of thing, 30 to 45 minutes is a good amount of time to budget.
