The Baha'is are a small and intriguing religion. The Bahai’s roots are in Islam, but it is not defined as a stream of Islam and, in Iran, is even persecuted. It has millions of believers globally, and they believe in equality, justice, solidarity, and pacifism. Its global centers are in Acre and Haifa.
The Bahais place great emphasis on aesthetics and beauty, which is reflected in the design of the gardens in their centers.
The Baha'i complex on mount Carmel is stunning in its beauty. It is a place of tranquility amidst the hustle and bustle of the city.
The gardens are spectacular. You will find there dozens of types of plants in neatly order, and paths paved with reddish gravel. In large parts of the gardens, you will find terraces, fountains, and canals.
Located on the highest part of the German colony, the gardens and temple are the cherry on the cake.
1. If you wish to tour the gardens, please note that the Baha'is ask you to dress modestly.
