We specifically visited Haifa, the largest city in northern Israel, to visit the Bahai Gardens. Also known as the Hanging Gardens of Haifa, these gardens are stunningly beautiful. At its center stands a domed shrine dedicated to the Bab, the resting place of the Prophet-Herald of the Bahai faith. From the shrine, there are nineteen terraces with stairs extending up the northern slope of Mount Carmel.

Beautifully manicured trees and hedges, among colorful flowers and graveled pathways can be found throughout the gardens.

The gardens provide an excellent view of the city below and the vast Mediterranean Sea.

The gardens are also worth visiting in the evening. The lights and fountains add to the beauty of the gardens.

We ended up visiting the Bahai Gardens twice because they were so gorgeous. A trip to Haifa, just to see these gardens is worth it. These were some of the best gardens we have seen during our travels.
