PLACES OF WORSHIP The Baha'i World Center is in the Holy Land. From the time of Baha'u'llah's exile to Akka, the spiritual and administrative center of the Faith has been established in the two cities of Akka and Haifa. The Baha'i Holy Places in Israel consist of the Shrines of Baha'u'llah and The Bab and historic sites associated with Them. Baha'u'llah instructed that the World Center of His Faith should be in the vicinity of these Shrines. The Seat of the Universal House of Justice is located on Mt. Carmel in Haifa. The central position of prayer and meditation in Baha'i individual and community life places emphasis on houses of worship in villages, towns, and cities. At present, Houses of Worship exist in Wilmette, Illinois, U.S.A.; Frankfurt-am-Main, West Germany; Kampala, Uganda; Sidney, Australia; Panama City, Panama; New Delhi, India; and Apia, Western Samoa. Services of worship consist of the recitation of Baha'i scriptures and scriptures of the other divinely revealed religions and "a capella" music is also allowed. Eventually, each locality will have its own house of worship, which will serve as the point around which the scientific, educational, humanitarian, and administrative institutions of the Baha'i community revolve. Many local Baha'i communities currently own properties used for activities.
