BATTAMBANG PROVINCE — Some 150 years ago, the Baha’i faith was born in Iran, making it one of the youngest religions in the world.
Last year, the first Baha’i temple opened in Cambodia’s Battambang province, where hundreds of worshipers now congregate.
Baha’is believe in the unity of God, religion, and humanity and that these core principles are revealed through divine messengers, or prophets, including Moses, Muhammad, and Jesus Christ. Bahá’u’lláh, who founded the religion in Iran in the 1860s, declared himself the latest manifestation of these messengers.
