The blue print theme of this booklet is meant to reflect its expansive construction process, which involved multiple design reworks and delays through the Depression of 1920 and World War II
When opened to the blue interior, the booklet reveals 9 panels that house simple line illustrations of symbols in the Baha’i faith or a description of its corresponding symbol. The choice for a 9-paneled booklet reflects the Baha’i belief of 9 representing perfection . This belief is reinforced through imagery such as the 9-pointed star. The center panel of this booklet reflects what is seen at the top of the temples domed ceiling, the Arabic inscription for the “Greatest Name”, the supreme manifestation of god.
When opened on the opposite side, this booklet reveals key points of the temple's architecture, such as its focus on light and unity through its brilliant white cement frame and open design.
