The Baha'i temple and surrounding gardens are an amazing sight to see in Haifa. Also try to see the gardens of the house when the leader of the Baha'i lived, at another location in Haifa.

These gardens are spectacular, being so well maintained and being built as terraces on the side of a steep hill. I visited the dome and gardens surrounding the dome. I also took the lower terrace tour (Hebrew only), which takes place weekly, only in the month of December. If you do the upper terrace tour (offered almost every day), it's... More

Amazing place. You have to inform about right time to visit because is open only some hours a day. The Bahá’í Gardens in Haifa comprise a staircase of nineteen terraces extending all the way up the northern slope of Mount Carmel.

Words can't describe the beauty. Thrilled we could experience it. Again, our personal guide provided ample information about this amazing place. Even without that, it's a sight to behold.

The gardens are a reflection of perfection with impecable landscaping, discreet fountains with all stairs and gates and ironworks representing pieces of pure art. The temples (unfortunatelly we could not vist them) are majestic (The Golden Dome is the principal attraction, though I found the Pantheon more impressive. The visit is limited to some 40 minutes (unfortunatelly).
