Hanging Gardens of Haifa
The Terraces of the Bahá’í Faith is also recognize as the Hanging Gardens of Haifa. These are garden terraces around the temple of the Báb on Mount Carmel in Haifa, Israel. They are very famous and one of the most tripped tourist magnetism in Israel. The designer is Fariborz Sahba from Iran, the structural engineers are Karban and Co. from Haifa. Along with the Baha’i Holy destination in Western Galilee, it is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The terraces stands for the first eighteen followers of the Báb, who were assigned “Letter of the Living”,although no individual terraces are joined with individual letters.
Nine concentric rounds present the central geometry of the eighteen terraces. The recognition of a circle assumes a centre, so the terraces have been visualized as produced from the Shrine of the Báb. The eighteen terraces and the one other terrace of the Shrine of the Báb make total nineteen terraces. Nineteen is a major number within both the Bábí and Bahá’í religions.
Fariborz Sahba started work in 1987 maintaining the gardens and oversaw structure. The terraces were unlocked to the general people in June 2001. From the time of its beginning the gardens expand approximately a kilometer up the side of Mount Carmel, holding some 200,000 square meters of land.
The gardens have components of the Persian paradise gardens, dividing the site from the sound of the neighboring and uniting the different Bahá’í buildings on Mount Carmel together.
