Excavation work commences for Chile’s “temple of light”

28 November 2010

SANTIAGO, Chile — Excavation work is under way for the new Baha’i House of Worship for the South American continent, in the Chilean capital of Santiago.

The ground work comes after a prolonged search for a site and unprecedented technical challenges, which included the invention of an entirely new material for the building’s exterior. The site has now been set at a location in the hills of Peñalolen, a suburb to the east of the city, at the foot of the Andes.
