Bahaii gardens

In 1844 in Persia a young man named Mirza Ali declared himself as a Bab (the gate) and said that mankind was going to face a new era in which peace, tranquillity and fraternity will reign, and a prophet was going to appear and prepare mankind for this era.


How, from this point, a new monotheistic religion has developed and swept believers from all over the world after it?

Why, from all places on earth, they have chosen Haifa and built there the beautiful shrine and designed breathtaking gardens?


Where is the great prophet Baha Ulla burried, and what was the fate of Mirza Ali the Bab?


If you want to know the answers to those question-you are invited to come to Haifa and visit the beautiful shrines and the gardens which seround it.
