Petal alcoves of the temple are decorated with inspiring quotes of the Baha'i sacred scriptures. Although the temple belongs to the Baha'i sect, it is open to people of every and every faith. The Baha'i religion, an independent one, places huge significance on prayer and thought as instruments for the growth of the human soul.
