Bahá’u’lláh leaves the citadel
Shortly after the death of the Purest Branch, authorities permitted Bahá’u’lláh and His family to move to other quarters – the House of ‘Údí Khammár – within the walled city of ‘Akká. The rest of the exiles were sent to other locations in the city.
Although their living quarters changed, the exiles were still incarcerated in the prison city of ‘Akká. But it was now easier for people to visit Bahá’u’lláh.
