The Ismaili Centres are symbolic markers of the permanent presence and core values of Ismaili communities around the world. Incorporating spaces for social and cultural gatherings, intellectual engagement and reflection, as well as spiritual contemplation, they are bridges of friendship and understanding, and serve to enhance relationships among faith communities, government and civil society.

The Ismaili Centres are landmarks that affirm the presence and permanence of the Ismaili community wherever they are established. In architectural form, each individual Centre is unique, suited to its particular surroundings, and drawing on the cultural influences that are prevalent in that country.

The architecture of the Ismaili Centres identify a community that is at once confident of its past and modern in its outlook.
