    Golden Dome

    by galy Updated Apr 2, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Golden Dome is a shrine, not a temple, where the Bab (ar. "the Gate") and Baha'u'llah's son Abdu'l-Baha are buried. It's in the Bahai Gardens. You can reach it from the united nation avenue(shderot hatzionut) every day from 09:00a.m. to 12:00 . No need for reservation or organised tour, just walk in. The inside is nice but modest compare with the outside and the sorounding garden. Don't forget to take off your shoes when u enter

    A panorama I took.

    The Bahá'í World Centre, the focal point of the International Bahá'i community is not only the spiritual centre of the Bahá'í-world, but also the administrative heart.

    Depite the religious background of the place members of all religions or no religion at all can feel the harmony, beauty and peacefulness of this place. If you want to let your mind rest for a while in the middle of your trip, visiting to this place is totally worth it!! The gardens consist of 19 terraces with beautiful fountains and flowers, marble benches and pathways made of red rubble.

    In the 10th terrace lays the beautiful Shrine of the Báb, who is one of the two founders of the Bahá'í faith. Shrine of the Bahá'u'lláh is in Ákka, just across the Haifa bay.

    The administrative buildings are built in the most beautiful style, ressembling the antique buildings of Greece but having a harmonic, modern touch. The administrative buildings are on the "arch" just by the Shrine of the Báb.

    "The earth is but one country and mankind it's citizens." -Bahá'u'lláh-

    The gardens

    Ok I had never heard before about this religion, before we decided to go to Israel and I saw about this gardens. It seems that here is the Shrine of the Bab.

    We got to know that the World Center of the Bahai faith is located in Israel and includes holy places and beautiful gardens in both Acre and Haifa.

    The Bab (Siyyid 'Ali-Muhammad), Forerunner of Baha'u'llah, the Founder of the aha'i religion, is buried in the golden-domed mausoleum.

    Please remember you have to cover yourself there

    Bahai Gardens

    Renovated in the last years, the Bahai Gardens are the most tourist atractive place in Haifa. You can go on a tour inside the gardens and into the golden dome, bt the most beautifull sight is looking at the gardens from the street below.

    Visit the Bahai temple and grounds.
    The view from the temple is outstanding, as the hanging gardens descend from the temple at the top down to the Mediterranean Sea.
