    Thank you for sharing. It's hard to write a page about your hometown, and you've done a good job.

    If you feel like a good laugh, visit my Toronto page and check the album called WORST SNOW STORM EVER. It is a joke album!

    Thanks for sharing these interesting tips. I will surely visit Bahai gardens and walk up Mt Carmel when I am in israel in summer.

    Correction: Baha'u'llah is not buried in the Shrine. This is where the Bab (ar. "the Gate") and Baha'u'llah's son Abdu'l-Baha are buried.
