Bahai Gardens.
The Bahá'Ã- Faith is a religion teaching the essential worth of all religions, and the unity and equality of all people.Established by Bahá'u'lláh in 1863, it initially grew in Iran (Persia) and parts of the Middle East, where it has faced ongoing persecution since its inception. Currently it has between 5 and 7 million adherents, known as Bahá'Ã-s, spread out into most of the world's countries and territories.
Bahá'Ã- gardens, alson known as The Terraces of the Bahá'Ã- Faith, or the Hanging Gardens of Haifa, are garden terraces around the Shrine of the Báb, where the remains of the Báb, founder of the BábÃ- Faith and forerunner of Bahá'u'lláh in the Bahá'Ã- Faith, have been buried.
Beginning at its base, the gardens extend almost a kilometer up the side of Mount Carmel, covering some 200,000 square meters of land. The gardens are linked by a set of stairs flanked by twin streams of running water cascading down the mountainside through the steps and terrace bridges.
