When Baha’u’llah, arrived at the prison at Akka, in 1868, He wrote  ‘Know thou, that upon Our arrival at this Spot, We chose to designate it as the “Most Great Prison”. Once a wealthy nobleman, Baha’u’llah was banished from His native Persia for supporting the declaration of the Bab and for declaring His mission in the Garden of Ridvan on the outskirts of Baghdad in 1863. He was imprisoned for forty years and exiled first to Baghdad, then to Adrianople and later banished to Constantinople, and eventually to the Turkish Bastille in the prison city of Akka in Palestine. It was in this cell, in the Most Great Prison, that Baha’u’llah revealed His divine tablets addressed to the Kings, Queens and rulers of the world, proclaiming His mission of equality and unity for the whole world.
