Baha’u’llah’s Prison Cell in Akka, Israel

This is dedicated to White Hanky.

The video is by an amateur videographer so it is a bit shaky and the production values aren’t that great but who cares? You can actually see the exterior and interior of the prison. And in the next segment of the video some other sites in Akka.

And here you can see the layout of the interior:

Notice the skylight towards the center right. This is where Baha’u’llah’s youngest son, Mirza Mihdi, was fatally injured at the age of 22. In the video you can see the small area cordoned off and the floor in the small area, is left in its original condition (as opposed to the new floor that was recently put in as part of the large renovation project).

    Dear Baquia: what a wonderful Ridvan gift! My heart has no words except thankful tears. You have made the long road back to Akka a wee bit shorter. Blessings! WH
