Day 2: Baha'i Garden and Shrine

The Baha'i faith was founded in Persia by Mirza Husayn Ali (1817-1892), known as Baha'u'llah, and holds as its central belief the unity of mankind. Siyyid `Ali Muhammad Shirazi (1819-1850), who went by the title of Bab, was one of three central figures of Baha'i faith and was martyred by the Persians at the age of 30. Baha'u'llah's son had this mausoleum built in Haifa and reinterred the Bab's remains here in 1909. The surrounding hillside was built as a terraced garden that is maintained by Baha'i volunteers from around the world.

Fanaticism consists of redoubling your effort when you have forgotten your aim. (George Santayana)
