Inscription. On 21 March 1909 the mortal remains of the Báb, one of the Central Figures of the Bahá'í Faith, were interred in the Shrine that is the focal point of these gardens. Martyred in Iran in 1850, the Báb had devoted Himself to preparing the way for Bahá'u'lláh, Founder of the Bahá'í Faith, and for His Message of the unification of humankind. The outer structure of the Shrine, as well as the eighteen garden terraces were created entirely through contributions from Bahá'ís around the world. We will be grateful for your care in maintaining the cleanliness of the surroundings and respecting their sacred character.

The Shrine of the Báb has been inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List for its profound spiritual meaning and the testimony it bears to the strong tradition of pilgrimage in the Bahá'í Faith.
 
Erected by The Bahá'í Faith.
