Week 15: Monument

The challenge for Week #15 of the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge is “Monument”.

I had the honour of going on Bahá’í Pilgrimage in 2008, in Haifa, Israel. One of the Holy Places that we visited is the Shrine of the Báb, sitting high up on Mount Carmel, surrounded by its beautiful, well-kept gardens, overlooking the Haifa Bay.

It is one of the most peaceful, prayerful, beautiful places ever, and one I dream of visiting again… and soon.

Here are a few shots from that visit.

You can find out more about the Bahá’í Faith by visiting www.bahai.org
