The 19 terraces of the Bahá'í Gardens, also known as Hanging Gardens of Haifa, climb the northern slope of Mount Carmel with views of Haifa, the Galilee Hills and the Mediterranean Sea. At the center of the well-manicured religious and UNESCO World Heritage site is the golden-domed Shrine of the Báb, the tomb of Prophet-Herald of the Bahá'í Faith. The inner gardens closer to the shrine close at noon. Walking tours offered daily except Wednesdays.
