The Bahai gardens and religious sites at Mt Carmel are a real treasure. If you are lucky enough to see the site from right at the bottom of the road leading up to it, it is absolutely stunning.

Great gardens but if you want to go inside the building make sure you are not wearing a sleeveless top or at least have a scarf to cover your shoulders. You must be on time for the tours or you will have to wait for the next one. There are a lot of steps so wear comfortable shoes.

Certainly worth seeing but these immaculate gardens but beware as you pay to get in but can only access a small part. View if the bay is great also from this point.

Beautiful grounds. The temple was closed for cleaning so we did not get to enter that part of the garden area.

Make sure you attend the guided tours. It is in English usually at 12pm; check the site for timing before visiting.

If you want to see breathtaking gardens and gorgeous views, this is a must see place. I'd recommend a guided tour to further discover the Bahai religion and its founder. Very interesting.

If you want to get into the Bahai Gardens, go before noon, it closes early. But you can always go to the top of the hill and look down on them.

This place was beautiful. I haven't seen a garden this immaculate. The tour guide was quiet and did not come accross very enthusiastically for such an amazing place. I would come with time so you can stroll and take your time while there.
