Built on the slopes of Mount Carmel, Haifa is home to historic sites and holy places held sacred by different faiths. Here you'll find churches and mosques in addition to synagogues as well as the expansive Baha'i Shrine and Gardens. Perhaps the most popular and most visited attraction in Haifa is the magnificent Baha'I Shrine and Gardens. With its stone peacocks and eagles and meticulously manicured cypress trees, these beautiful, geometric cascading gardens were originally planned by Shogi Effendi, the late Guardian of the Faith. Recent redesigns and improvements have put these gardens on a level with some of the most magnificent horticultural marvels in the world.
