The architecture of the Bahá'í House of Worship reflects the simplicity, freshness and clarity of the Bahá'í Revelation while also conveying respect for all world religions. The structure is made up of pure white marble. The symbol ‘Lotus’ articulates as the symbol common to Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Islam. Adherents of any faith are free to visit the temple and pray or meditate. All of the Bahá'í Houses of Worship have a dome that symbolizes the unity of the diverse religions.

The auditorium of the Temple shows films on the House of Worship as well as on the Bahá’í Faith and is used for performances/concerts for good causes and with a positive social message.
