Photographer's Note

Haifa from Mt. Carmel.
As noted before Haifa is the most sacred to the Baha'i faith.
The building half round on right is the Baha'i centre for the Study of the Sacred Texts, and the rectangular building in the middle is the Universal House of Justice, centre of the Bahá'í covenant, with 60 arches façade (the arches are not visible on picture). The Golden dome Shrine on left. Also but not visible is the building of International Archives ( that looks similar to Athens Acropolis).
The area of the buildings and garden of the Baha'i complex stretch from tops of the Mt. Carmel down to lower town where the German-Colony district on Ben-Gurion blvd.
The big grey edifice near the port is the Dagon granary.

Enhanced saturation due to bright daylight.
