The Bahai Gardens in Haifa are made up of nineteen terraces and dominate the northern slope of Mount Carmel. The center piece being the golden domed temple which serves as a shrine to the creator of the religion the Báb. The gardens are kept in stunning condition and well worth a visit if you get the chance. Oh and they are free to enter as well so you can’t lose.
Bahai Gardens Haifa Israel
September 14, 2011 | POSTED IN Featured Photos
When I was in Haifa, I was really interested to see the gardens but unfortunately they were closed while I was there. I was able to walk up within one of the levels of the garden, but almost every other level was closed to the public. I’m pretty sure that’s fairly common for the place, but might be wrong.
Adam the tour guide we had told us the inner gardens were open Monday to Friday from 9am to 12pm via a guided tour every day and the outer gardens are open from 9am to 4pm from memory every day of the week. Perhaps you were there in the afternoon and thats why you missed it.
Thanks Stephanie was so so beautiful walking through the gardens.
I’ve been there but honestly, I’m not sure I have more than a couple photos. It was a few years ago and I was with Arnon Eshel, a jerk off guide who rushed me through. Can you believe it? I think I’m going back soon, though. The gardens are probably the most interesting thing in Haifa.
Sabina I was treated to a private tour in the afternoon as we couldn’t be there in the morning but its a shame you were rushed through. I didn’t get to enter the temple but everything else was really beautiful. The gardens are kept in such great shape.
Haifa was cool but then I had a LOT of local knowledge considering all the students that organised the trip either study at the Technion or the University of Haifa.
Great shot Chris. Those gardens look beautiful. It really looks like you had an awesome time in Israel.
The Bahai Gardens looked very stunning. I am impressed on how the trees and structures blended and complement each other very well. It is nice to learn that the gardens are kept in stunning condition, which could really attract many tourists to view this awesome sight. Thanks for describing the bahai gardens and sharing its beautiful photograph.
Cool Pic- The Dome was under scaffolding when I was there in May 2010.
