21. The Háziratu'l-Quds in Taipei


One of the goals of the Nine Year Plan which was given to the National Spiritual Assembly of North East Asia was the acquisition of a National Hazíratu'l-Quds in Taipei. The National Spiritual Assembly of the United States was to assist with this goal.

At the encouragement of Dr. Muhajir the Bahá'ís of Taipei found a suitable site. It was an apartment on the third floor of a new building in a good location. The purchase price was US$9,000, which was a considerable sum in those days. The National Spiritual Assembly of the United States paid US$6,000 and the rest came from the National Spiritual Assembly of North East Asia and donations. It was bought in time to hold the Naw-Rúz celebration there in 1967. The first National Convention, the same year, was held in it.



The National Hazíratu'l-Quds in Taipei is on the third floor of this building. This photo was taken not long after its purchase in 1967.
