The Bahá’í House of Worship was opened to the public in December 1986. Since then thousands visit the House of Worship every day. While the visitors enjoy the peace and the serene environment that lends itself well to meditation, many inquire as to the source that has inspired such a place of worship. As a result the Information Centre was designed for those who wish to know more about the Bahá’í House of Worship and the Bahá’í Faith.
The Information Centre is built to state-of-the-art specifications and it provides information on different facets of the Bahá’í Faith in the form of photo panels, written text and films. The centre features a visitor’s gallery. The gallery focuses on the history of the Bahá’í Faith, its philosophy and the socio-economic development activities undertaken by the Bahá’ís around the world.
The primary objective of such events is to promote unity through arts. In addition, over the years, the Bahá’í community has come to refer to one aspect of its efforts to contribute to the advancement of civilization as participation in the discourses of society. The Information Centre serves as a venue for such ongoing discourses on subjects as the equality of women and men, the constructive role that religion must play in society, the role of media in promoting social betterment and so on organised by the Office of Public Affairs of the Bahá’ís of India.
The Information Centre is open from Tuesday to Sunday. Visiting Hours from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
