The first day of Ridvan is an important Baha'i holiday. Ridvan is a twelve-day festival that festively marks the start of Baha'i faith dating back to 1863. It is symbolically marked by Baha'u'llah's announcement that he was the exemplification of God. The word Ridvan translates as paradise, the name given to the Garden of Ridvan on outer Baghdad, where Baha'u'llah stayed for twelve days and proclaimed his declaration.


21st April every year.
