  • Baghdad – The House of Bahá'u'lláh in Baghdad, is a place of Bahá'í pilgrimage. Its significance is that it is where Bahá'u'lláh lived in from 1853 to 1863 (except for two years). It is designated in the Kitáb-i-Aqdas as a place of pilgrimage and is considered a holy place by Bahá'ís.[1] During the 1920s the house was confiscated by Shiah authorities, who were hostile to the Bahá'í Faith. The Council of the League of Nations upheld the Bahá'í's claim to the house, but it has not yet been returned to the Bahá'í community.[1][2]
