* Right now we should be somewhere around Jagat on the Annapurna Circuit, in Nepal*
The Baha’i Gardens in Haifa, Israel surround the Shrine of the Bab, the resting place of the Prophet-Herald of the Baha’i faith. There are 19 separate terraces of gardens, stretching from the foot of Mount Carmel to nearly the top. There are only 3 sections that are open to the general public without a guide, and while they are lovely, they are very small. We decided to take the hour-long free guided tour so we could walk through the entire length of the garden, and that proved to be a fantastic choice. Our guide was very informative regarding the origins of the Baha’i faith, and we learned quite a lot about the foundations of the faith, and the basic beliefs of its followers.
