Bahai tiered garden

PARADISE ON EARTH: Thousands of members of the Bahai faith descended from across the globe to celebrate the grand opening of a massive terraced garden in the coastal city of Haifa, consecrating the burial site of the faith's 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.
