The Mansion of Bahjí is a term used to describe a summer house in Acre, Israel, where Bahá'u'lláh, founder of the Bahá'í Faith died in 1892. His shrine is located next to this house. The whole area was called Al-Bahjá (Place of Delight). `Abdu'l-Bahá first rented, and then purchased, the mansion for Bahá'u'lláh and the Bahá'í holy family to live in. Bahá'u'lláh moved from Mazra'ih to Bahji and resided in the building until his death.
