    Thanks for your post Thomas... I've been busy of late but the photos of the resting place of Shoghi Effendi in London are indeed lovely! Thanks for posting them.

    Thank you for this.......... I always had believed that Shoghi Effendi's grave was in Highgate cemetery, London, N1......

    It's a pity that Bahais are interred in such a short time after death or I would expect Shoghi Effendi to be in Haifa. That reminds me to ask: Where are the graves of Bahaullah and Abdul Baha ??

    Tony can tell you that we both debate strongly for and against Bahai, but my late wife was a Bahai and thus I was acquainted with Bahai for many years.

    He's been gone? I guess he is such a fixture here that I always feel he is with us in spirit.

    Abdul'baha was placed in the Shrine of the Bab by Shoghi Effendi, as a temporary location and will be relocated to a new resting place near the Garden of Ridvan. Which is between Akka and Haifa.

    New Shrine of Abdul'baha.

    Baha'ullah was placed in a Shrine only tens of meters away from where he passed away. At Bahjī.

    Shrine of Baha’u’llah

    Regards Tony

    Thank you Tony.
    Of course, you've been there, seen it all. I remember that you went a couple of years ago, correct?

    I have been very lucky to go twice on Pilgrimage OB. My wife and I applied way back in 1988, but in the end had no funds to go. It was not until 2018 that we got to go together, 30 years later. I have also been with our eldest son.

    I love the food in Israel, the shops with spices and best of all the sweet shops. :D;)

    Stay well, stay happy and all the best to you, the better half and family.:) Regards Tony
