First of all, I want to thank my readers and whoever commented – your words make a difference, so thank you!
I visited a friend that lives in Haifa and we went on a tour to the Baha’i Gardens. There are 19 terraces, connected by stairs (The garden and shrine are built on Mount Carmel).
The Baha’i faith was founded by Bahaullah in 19th century Persia, emphasizing the spiritual unity of all humankind – I thought that’s beautiful. It seems like a “live and let live” kind of faith – wouldn’t the world be a better place if all religions followed that line of thinking?
Unfortunately the tour guide didn’t talk a lot about the Baha’i faith, so I can’t really say anything about it. All I can do is just link to wiki.
I love the color green, and just looking at the flowers and thinking about the times invested in creating the garden just blows my mind. It’s definitely a form of art.
I added a gallery with some pictures. You’ll see I’m not too talented, and most of the photos are just a close up. I didn’t think about writing a post about it, or I would have tried taking better photos :)
Oh, and obviously, this post is part of the weekly photo challenge. I would love to see what you posted about!
