Looking down the steep slope of the Carmel Mountain in Haifa at the almost perfect symmetry of the Bahai Temple.
The temple grounds are trended by professional gardeners and Bahai volunteers who spend a year or so at the site tending the gardens. A guide explained that the Bahai faith does not allow its members to live permanently in Israel so as to avoid creating a hierarchy of members.
The founder of the the faith was known as the Bab - the Gate.
Today, the majestic building with the golden dome, overlooking the Bay of Haifa, Israel, and set amidst beautiful gardens, is the Shrine where the Báb's earthly remains are entombed.
