UNESCO - Bahá’i Holy Places in Haifa and the Western Galilee, Israel

The Bahá’i Holy Places in Haifa and Western Galilee are inscribed for their profound spiritual meaning and the testimony they bear to the strong tradition of pilgrimage in the Bahá’i faith. The property includes the two most holy places in the Bahá’í religion associated with the founders, the Shrine of Bahá’u’lláh in Acre and the Shrine of the Báb in Haifa, together with their surrounding gardens, associated buildings and monuments.
The Shrine of the Báb is a structure in Haifa where the remains of the Báb, founder of Bábism and forerunner of Bahá'u'lláh in the Bahá'í Faith, have been buried. The dome is composed of 12,000 fish-scale tiles of 50 different shapes and sizes made in Portugal - the Shrine is enhanced by 19 garden terraces that stretch one kilometre from the base of Mount Carmel to its summit, and both the terraces and the Shrine are illuminated at night.
I have to admit the view of the gardens during both day and night was mesmerising :)
