Photographer's Note

Haifa is the second most sacred place for the Bahais, the first being Ako. The profhet of this new religion (founded some 110 years ago) is buried here.
A temple was built over his grave and vast gardens
surround it. In all there are 19 terraces that go up from the bottom of mount Carmel to it's top. 9 on each side of the temple. This shot was taken from the top terrace and shows only 2 terraces. Bahai volunteers from many countries come to take care of the gardens. Some parts of the garden can be visited free of charge.
