    An absolutely peaceful location for medication. Outdoors are perfect for photography, indoor photography strictly not allowed. Garden around is well maintained. Beach is two blocks away which is a plus. Limited parking space but street parking available.

    Nice space to walk by the grounds and next to the lake in addition. Beautiful space. Opens up to stars. Great mission of world peace and the only one of its kind, if a bit lofty in size. But both people and visitors are great The Temple itself is near by my family and I would recommend it, especially during a dusk or afternoon. On an occasion they light up the atmosphere and it is also ~11 miles from the Northwestern University, etc. Also one can find peace and quietude in great dimension. We are proud owners of one of its publications at thr home, additionally .

    The building is beautiful and intricate. The inside is peaceful and awe inspiring. It's wonderful that anyone can sit inside and worship in their own way. The gardens are beautiful. The gift shop and welcome center are in a new building to the west and is a great addition. Loved learning the history of the building and the religion.

    A fantastic place to visit and photograph (photography not allowed inside the temple.) Amazing detail and grounds. Wonderful night photography. Friendly staff.

    It is always a spiritual and enlightening experience for me to visit the Baha'i temple! People are all faiths are welcomed with open arms. And there is never a charge or request for donation, to enter and worship.
