Attraction details
Reviewed 12 July 2018

This attaraction should be a world wonder, it is amazing , the tour from the top of the gardens down to the bottom takes a good few hours and involves a lot of steep steps so if you're not good on your feet opt for a guided tour of one or two levels in the middle.

The gardens and the golden dome at the bottom are also worth a tour, we entered without a tour but due to a family member and friends being historically familiar we had a very interesting tour.

its a full day attraction. Wonderful history - beautiful gardens and buildings and not to be missed.

TIP : Park Halfway down - get bus up to the top or a "sherut" then when your within walking distance if you do the bottom and top gardens.

It is very easy to take Egged bus #136 bus from Ben Gurion street (about 5 minutes walk from the port entrance for passengers) to Yaffe Nof street at the top of mount Carmel from where the free tour starts at noon in English

Noon time is the ONLY English tour that happens (except Wednesdays)

The bahai faith seeks to unite Christian, Jewish and Muslims in one faith. Their headquarters is a peaceful place in Haifa, the "City Beautiful", and appropriately has a sloping, manicured, large garden that visitors are most welcome to visit. By all means do s0 - you won't be disappointed.

The place is so peaceful and beautiful. We went early in the morning, and saw all of the people working in the gardens. Discovered that they work for free, and have to be of this religion to be able to work there.

If you are in the Haifa area, you really should visit the Shrine and Garden, the world center of the Baha'i faith. The String is open to the public most mornings; the gardens can be viewed, but are not open, on longer hours. The gardens are strictly geometrical, dignifiedand formal, and quite beautiful.

These gardens are beautiful, maintained immaculately and a pleasure to wander through.
