Building work in May and June 2017:
Throughout the months of May and June, there will be building and other works in the Bahá'í section of the Cemetery to further enhance the beauty and dignity of the site. This may result in some noise and other inconvenience. We regret this very much and hope it will not interfere with your quiet moments too much.
