A short video about the construction of Haifa’s Shrine of the Báb. The construction of the shrine, which is the second holiest place for Baháʼís, was completed in 1953. The imposing structure was designed by ʻAbdu’l-Bahá, the son of the Baháʼí Faith’s founder Baháʼu’lláh. This video follows the construction of the shrine’s golden dome as well as documents the Acre Citadel, in which Baháʼu’lláh was imprisoned by the Ottomans.
