Baháʼí

Temple

– one of the landmarks on any ride north out of Chicago takes you past this house of worship. Sat like a luminous jewel on the lakefront in Wilmette, the nine sided dome represents a closed lotus flower. Nine, being the last number in the decimal system, which Baha’í’s believe to mean completion and thus perfection. It looks stunning under a clear blue winter sky.
