A two-year long project that strengthened seismic resistance of the House of Abbud while restoring parts of the building that had deteriorated over time has concluded. 

This undertaking was an extension of the conservation work carried out by Shoghi Effendi in the early 1950s, when he prepared the sacred site for pilgrimage.

As exiles and under house arrest, Baha’u’llah and his family arrived at this building in 1871 and lived in extremely cramped conditions. At one point more than 13 people were living in one room.

It was at this sacred site that, in 1873, Baha’u’llah revealed His Most Holy Book—the Kitab-i-Aqdas—which outlines the essential laws and principles of his Faith, lays the groundwork for Baha’i institutions, and is referred to in the Baha’i writings as the “charter of the future world civilization.”

The restoration of the House of Abbud aims to preserve “the building in a befitting condition for centuries to come”, wrote the Universal House of Justice in a letter to Baha’i National Spiritual Assemblies on Friday.

Different aspects of the restoration and conservation work can be seen in a selection of images on news.bahai.org.
