Inspired by the Baha’i principles of oneness and justice, thousands of youth in Delhi are at the heart of far-reaching community-building activities.
The new facility, which can accommodate hundreds, will be used to host camps, courses, and seminars for youth and young adults who are involved in efforts to improve their communities.
Baha’i Houses of Worship are referred to as “the dawning-place of light” by ‘Abdu’l-Baha.

A new metro line recently opened at the Kalkaji Mandir stop close to the House of Worship. It is anticipated that this improved access will double the number of visitors to the Temple.
“To have such a dynamic and flourishing movement of young people dedicated to service to their communities, many of whom come from the surrounding neighborhoods, meeting and learning together right here in the shadow of the Temple is something very special,” said Tabriz Alam, who assists with the coordination of Baha’i educational efforts in New Delhi.
