The Baha’i Temple

This magnificent building was dedicated in 1961, with construction starting in April 1957.

The Architect was John Brogan.

It attracted interest at the time due to a helicopter being used to complete the lantern ,that sits atop the dome – an Australian first in the construction industry.

The Temple has a diameter of thirty metres and is thirty eight metres high. It is visible from the central coast, some 80 klms away.

Like all the Baha’i temples throughout the world, it has nine sides , which is a symbol of unity of world religions.

In this image, I tried to capture the serenity of  the temple and its surrounds, at dusk.
