The Baha’i center in Seoul was the site of a special program – one of thousands around the world – marking the 191st anniversary of the birth of Baha’u’llah, which occurred on 12 November 1817 in Tehran, Iran.

The anniversary is one of nine holy days during the year on which Baha’is suspend work.

Activities were planned in cities, towns, and villages around the globe, including at Baha’i Houses of Worship, at national and local Baha’i centers, at public facilities, and in private homes.
