BahA¡'A World Centre in Haifa, the spiritual and administrative centre of the BahA¡'A Faith. The Terraces of the BahA¡'A Faith, or Hanging Gardens of Haifa. In the foreground, the Baha'i Eagle. In the center, the golden-domed Shrine of the BA b (Ali Muhammad Shirazi), the Prophet of the BahA¡'i Faith. The terraces represent the first 18 disciples of the BA¡b with 9 concentric circles from each side providing the main geometry of the 18 terraces conceived as generated from the Shrine of the BA¡b. The 18 terraces plus the one terrace of the Shrine make 19 terraces, a significant number within both the BahA¡'A and BA¡bA religions. A Unesco World Heritage site.
