This is a guide to the history and site of pilgrimage of the Baha'i Faith in the Holy Land. The author lived at the Baha'i World Centre for twenty-five years, and used the opportunity to make the subject of this book his special study. He has methodically examined the geography, archaeology and history of all that relates to the Baha'i Faith, as well as the results of Jewish, Christian and Baha'i scholarship.

The book is arranged in 4 sections:
1) An introduction giving an overview of the significance of the Holy Land and Baha'u'llah's arrival there
2) Akka from ancient times until now
3) the Akka area including the Ridvan Garden and Bahji
4) Haifa and the developments on Mt Carmel from the 1860s to the completion of the Seat of the Universal House of Justice in 1982.

The text is enriched by a unique collection of historical photographs and drawings, which will prove both fascinating, and of great value for Baha'i pilgrims and visitors, as well as those who have not had the opportunity to visit the Holy Land.
