Great news – fabrication of components for the new Baha?i temple in Chile in South America has begun, as?this story?on the Baha?i World News Service makes clear:
The structure will be created by nine translucent alabaster and cast-glass ?wings,? which during the day will allow sunlight to filter through. At night the temple will emit a warm glow from the interior lighting.
The huge segments that will form the sides and dome of the building are being fabricated in Toronto and then will be transported to Chile.
Mind you, it will take some time before the temple is complete:
It will take two to three years to complete the pieces of the temple that are being fabricated in Canada. At the actual site in Chile, construction of the foundation is tentatively set to begin next October.
