A Baha'i temple is a house of prayer and worship in the Baha'i faith. There are only a few in the world, but they are present on every continent except Antarctica. Baha'i temples tend to be very elegantly constructed, with highly formal designs and surrounded by luxuriant gardens. Many of them are 9-sided, representing the 9 prophets recognized by the faith.
