The House of Baha’u'llah in Baghdad, a Baha’i sacred site.

According to the Universal House of Justice, the House of Baha’u'llah in Baghdad, sometimes referred to as “The Most Great House”, has been destroyed. There is no information on the extent of the damage or who was responsible. This Baha’i sacred site is where Baha’u'llah sought refuge in exile from Iran from 1853 to 1863. The home had been seized by Iraq’s Shi’a government around the 1920a and has not been returned to the Baha’i community since, although the League of Nations upheld their claim to it. From the Baha’i World News Service:

Bani Dugal, the Principal Representative of the Baha’i International Community to the United Nations said: “This deplorable act has robbed people throughout the world of a priceless piece of their spiritual heritage.”
“While the details are not yet clear, there should be no doubt as to the Baha’i community’s strength of feeling about this terrible and shocking deed”, she continued.
“The Baha’is of the world are, of course, heartbroken by the news. Yet, as always, they remain positive and focused on their efforts to promote peace and contribute to the betterment of their communities”, she added.
The Most Great House was Baha’u'llah’s place of residence for much of the time of His exile from Iran to Baghdad, Iraq. The site is located close to the banks of the River Tigris.
