The Beautiful Bahá’í Gardens of Haifa: Photo Gallery


When the Bahá’í Gardens opened to the public in 2001, it was immediately elevated into the pantheon of world class public gardens, and by 2008 UNESCO had taken notice and named it a World Heritage Site.

Located in the Mediterranean city of Haifa, Israel, the Bahá’í Gardens was built as a shrine to the Bahá’í faith and comprises a staircase of 19 terraces extending up the northern slope of the city’s Mount Carmel.

Beginning at its base, the Gardens extend vertically more than half a mile and cover some 2 million square feet.
