The Baha’i religion has roots in 19th-century Iran. The man known to believers as the Bab, or “gate,” and venerated as a prophet was executed for heresy in 1850 and later buried in Haifa. Today, the faith claims between 5 million and 6 million adherents worldwide.

In Haifa, the domed Baha’i shrine is positioned on a densely populated hillside at the midpoint of a striking green strip of manicured gardens that cuts up the slope from top to bottom.
