Wilmette

The Baha'i House of Worship

100 Linden Ave.
Chicago, IL, 60091, United States
TEL: (847) 853-2300

This is one of only seven Bahai temples on earth and just one in the Western Hemisphere, built for the more than five million people worldwide who practice the ecumenical religion known as the Bahai Faith. White cement, exposed-quartz crystals, and multiple skylights embellish this extraordinary domelike house of worship. And religious symbols from every major religion adorn the building’s nine sides—which represent harmony and unity.

 

Tip: During the daily 9:15 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. services, you can sit and listen to the prayers and songs.
