Ridvan Festival

21 April- 02 May 1863. This period marks the duration of Bahaism's mother festival, the Ridvan ("Paradise"). Ridvan was the garden where Mirza Hoseyn 'Ali Nur publicly declared himself a manifestation of God -- the Baha 'Ullah ("Glory of God") -- thus kicking off a new religious sect, the Bahai Faith.
