154 Raise Up And Exalt The Two Houses In The Twin Hallowed Spots






and the
other sites wherein the throne of your Lord ... hath been established.
133


Baha'u'llah identifies the two Houses as His House in Baghdad,
designated by Him as the Most Great House, and the House of the Bab in
Shiraz, both of which have been ordained by Him as sites of pilgrimage.
(See Q and A 29, 32 and note 54.)

Shoghi Effendi explained that the other sites wherein the throne of your
Lord ... hath been established refers to those places where the Person of
the Manifestation of God has resided. Baha'u'llah states that the people
of the areas where these are situated may choose to preserve either each
house wherein He resided, or one of them (Q and A 32). Baha'i
institutions have identified, documented, and where possible, acquired and
restored a number of the historical sites associated with the Twin
Manifestations.
