The Bahá’í Gardens in Haifa, Israel see over half a million visitors a year, making them one of the most visited spots in Israel.
The Bahá’í complex in Haifa is one of the two most important locations for the Bahá’í faith, along with Akko, which is visible across the bay from the Haifa complex. The Haifa complex is home to the final resting place of the Bab, or the Gate in Arabic.
The Bab plays a role similar to John the Baptist in Christianity. He announced the imminent arrival of the founder of the faith–Bahá’u’lláh, or The Promised One of All Ages. Bahá’u’lláh’s final resting place is in Akko.
The garden in Haifa spreads out from the top of Mount Caramel in nineteen terraces. They overlook the bay and across that the gardens in Akko. The gardens in Haifa and Akko make it to the UNESCO World Heritage site. Tatyana used her Huwaei Ascend to get this shot from on top of Mount Caramel.
