The Garden Terraces of the Bahá’í Faith are located all around Israel, however the garden terraces around the Shrine of the Bábon Mount Carmel in Haifa are some of the most visited. The Iranian architect Fariborz Sahba began work on the gardens in 1987 and the terraces were officially opened to the public in 2001. Their unique design and magnificent detailing, which replicates the gardens of old Persia, make for truly exquisite and peaceful surroundings.
The gardens comprise of a staircase of nineteen terraces extending all the way up the northern slope of Mount Carmel. The golden-domed Shrine of the Báb, the resting place of the Prophet-Herald of the Bahá’í Faith, stands on the central terrace, looking across the bay towards ‘Akko.
