Construction progresses on Cambodia Temple

BATTAMBANG, Cambodia, 29 March 2017, (BWNS) — Excitement is stirring in Battambang as anticipation builds for the completion of the first local Baha’i House of Worship. Scores upon scores of inhabitants in the region have been galvanized to offer service to their communities as well as at the Temple site, where hundreds of shrubs and flowers have been planted since the initiation of this historic endeavor.

Additionally, construction of the central edifice and surrounding buildings has advanced rapidly, and recent aerial video footage captures the beauty of the emerging structure and the surrounding land.

Some of the most notable recent developments include the completion of a number of auxiliary buildings on the land and the erection of the steel roof structure for the main edifice, which is soon to be followed by cladding and glazing of the roof.

Once the roof is set by mid-April, the Greatest Name motif will be raised inside the House of Worship, marking yet another significant milestone in the construction process.

In the midst of the growing excitement among the local population, the city governor of Battambang, Mr. Chan Sophal, paid a visit to the Temple site on the first of March. He met with members of the community and had a chance to survey developments.
