Haifa: The Bahai Temple

Seven hundred international volunteers maintain the Bahai Temple and Gardens, designed by Canadian architect William Sutherland Maxwell, and completed in 1953, which decorate the Mount Carmel slope overlooking the city, the port and the Mediterranean. The golden domed shrine houses the remains of Bab, a Persian, martyred in 1850, who announced he had been sent by God to prepare humanity for a new age and the imminent appearance of the Bahaullah, a messenger of God even greater than himself.
