Abstract:
Expanded version of a portion of Remey's earlier Mashrak-el-Azkar [Mashriqu'l-Adhkár]: Descriptive of the Bahai temple, with photographs of Temple models.
Notes:
This document is online in a variety of formats at archive.org. The PDF copy below has been stripped of blank pages. See also Mashrak-el-Azkar: Descriptive of the Bahai temple (1917).

While Remey later broke the covenant (see uhj_mason_remey_followers), at the time he prepared these designs he was an influential figure in the Baha'i community and was later appointed Hand of the Cause. This document is thus not "covenant-breaker" material.
