In celebrating the World Interfaith Harmony Week 2011, URI MENA Office hosted an interactive lecture on main Shrines in MENA and Cyprus delivered by the photographer Mr. Abdel Raheem Arjan (www.arjanphoto.com). Many unique pictures of holy places in Syria, Egypt, Cyprus, UAE, Bahrain, and Jordan were presented. The pictures and their stories took us on a journey throughout the rich history of our region and brought up a lot of discussions which further enriched the lecture.
After the presentation a member from URI Jordan talked about the holy places of baha'i faith as well as many practices of this faith (particularly in Jordan), it was really a wonderful discussion that enriched the gathering.
