Baha’i House of Worship

The Baha’i House of Worship in Sydney, also known as the Baha’i Temple, stands as a symbol of the oneness of humanity. It is a place of worship open to people of all beliefs.

Its primary purpose is to join worship of God with service to humanity, and therefore it is the fullest expression of Baha’i devotional life.

“…it forgeth bonds of unity from heart to heart; it is a collective centre for men’s souls.”

Opened in Ingleside in 1961, it is a prominent landmark high above Sydney’s northern beaches. The native gardens and natural bushland surrounding the Temple provide a tranquil environment for individual prayer, meditation, contemplation and reflection.

Baha’i Temples have nine sides symbolising unity, and a central dome. There are eight continental Baha’i Temples around the world.

We offer the House of Worship as a gift to the Australian people in line with our belief in the oneness of God, the oneness of His Messengers and the oneness of humanity. You can visit the Baha’i House of Worship to pray or reflect, enjoy the native gardens or learn more about the Baha’i Faith.
