The Bahá’í World Centre, "the spiritual and administrative heart of the Bahá’í community, is located in the twin cities of ‘Akká and Haifa in northern Israel." [1]

"The administrative center of the Baha'i Faith is in Haifa. Located on Mount Carmel, just above the Shrine of the Báb and at the top of an arc-shaped path in a monument garden, is the Seat of the Universal House of Justice, the international governing body of the Bahá'í Faith. From this building and others nearby, a staff of more than 600 people from 60 countries administers the international affairs of the Bahá'í world community." [2]

The building complex took some ten years to complete at a reported cost of US$250 million - "paid for entirely by contributions from members of the Baha'i faith".[3]
