Upon entering the temple complex, a guard told us we could not use our tripod because "that's the way it is" although we only carried a small point & shoot camera & needed it to take our pictures together with the view in the background. I found this quite annoying.
The garden itself was beautiful & very well maintained but we could not explore the garden beside the staircase leading down to the street below as it was closed (no elevators), unfortunately (we entered through the main entrance at the top, near the temple).
There was also an unfriendly guard that watched us as if we were troublemakers & asked us to take off our shoes upon 1st stepping on the marble floor of the temple, when we discovered it was actually ok to take off our shoes only in front of the temple guide near the temple building entrance.
The female toilet was not nearly as well maintained as the gardens outside, ironically. If you are driving a car, then there's some free parking in streets nearby but can be difficult to find.
On a positive note, he temple guide near the temple building entrance was quite friendly & informative in explaining the Baha'i religion to us.
