The Bahai Gardens in Acre
Updated: Oct 2, 2022
The Baha'is have two centers in Israel – Haifa and Acre. I feel the temple and gardens in Haifa are more familiar. The gardens in Acre are a place worth visiting - like a trip abroad.
This spacious area is carefully manicured with pleasant paths and trees, flowers, and shrubs pruned in perfect order.
All the paths lead to the center, which includes the mansion and temple of Bahá’u’lláh, the Prophet who founded the Bahá’í religion. This section which consists of some of the gardens next to it, is now closed due to the Corona.
The walk in the gardens is easy, short, and pleasant. Please note that the gardens are part of a religious site. Visitors are asked to arrive in modest attire (cover the shoulders and pants - up to the knees).
