The Bahai Temple, about 7 kilometers from Kampala city center amazes many visitors not only because of its architectural splendor, but also because of the beautiful natural environment in which it majestically stands. Perched at the top of Kikaya hill, it can be seen from any of Kampalas hills during the 1950s, a group of Bah’s came to preach in Uganda and there was what the Bah’s call a “massive conversion”.

Many Ugandans accepted the Bah’ faith and “the Guardian”, Shoghi Effendi (1897-1957), leader of Bah’ faith worldwide, decided that they build “the mother Temple of Africa” in Uganda. Every continent has one temple, with the head temple in Haifa, Israel.
