Historical site of the week: Bahai Temple

The Bahai House of Worhip (1958)

Surrounded by extensive gardens, the Mother Temple for Africa was designed to fit with Uganda’s Culture and environment. With its nine-sided circular shape and striking dome, it was built under the supervision of the architects of the Bulange. At the time, the highest Building in East Africa, it remains one of the largest religious structures in Africa.
