One of the main attractions is the Bahá'í World Center, a place of pilgrimage and administrative center for followers of the Bahá'í faith.
Baha'i World Center
The choice of the location of the Bahá'í World Center was the result of Bahá'u'lláh's expulsion and imprisonment when he was sentenced to life imprisonment in the penal colony at Akko in 1868. The location of the Báb's tomb was chosen by his son, 'Abdu'l-Bahá.
