MIDEAST-HAIFA-BAHAI GARDEN

Picture taken 22 May 2001 shows the terraced garden in the coastal city of Haifa. Thousands members of the Bahai faith came from around the world to celebrate the grand opening of the garden consecrating the burial site of the faiths founder. The gardens, tucked into the steep slopes of mount Carmel, are designed in nine concentric circles around the shrine where Bahai prophet Siyyid Ali Muhammad -- known to Bahais as 'The Bab' -- is buried.
