A walk through the Baha’i Gardens on Mount Carmel

Posted By Harvey Stein On August 20, 2013 @ 12:00 am In | 3 Comments

It costs nothing to take a tour of the 19 perfectly manicured, terraced Baha’i Gardens covering the slope of Mount Carmel in Haifa.

Besides being a UN World Heritage Site that attracts 750,000 visitors each year, the gardens and fountains are part of the Baha’i World Center, a religious shrine for the followers of a faith that teaches beauty in diversity.

That clearly goes for plants as well as people. Catch a glimpse of some of the 450 plant species here.
