The two shrines, one near the recognized heritage site of Old Acre on Israel\'s northern coast and the other on Mount Carmel in Haifa, are the resting places of Baha\'u\'llah and the Bab, the founders of the Baha\'i Faith.Answered by Pardeep kapoor, 28 Oct '09 01:03 am
On June 1st and 3rd, the Bahai Gardens in Haifa, Israel has just been named a World Heritage Site by by UNESCO. The much smaller Baha'i shrine in one acre are, where the founder of the Baha'i faith, Bahaullah, was domiciled after he was released from a Turkish prison in Turkish ruled Palestine, is also named by the World Heritage Committee. The most interesting fact is the Baha'i Gardens and Shrine in Haifa cost 250 million US dollars, financed entirely by members of the Baha'i faith who do not accept money from persons who are not Baha'IAnswered by Anand Agarwal, 29 Oct '09 11:26 pm
