Described as the “eighth wonder of the world” and a “magnificent floral jewel,” and visited by millions of people, the award-winning terraced gardens of the Bahá’í Faith in Haifa, Israel, and the gardens north of Haifa at Bahjí Akka, burial site of the Founder of the Bahá’í Faith, have a unique history spanning more than one hundred fifty years.

Beyond the gardens' obvious beauty and serenity lies a compelling story of love, selfless devotion, patience, fortitude and extreme sacrifice, even martyrdom. It is intertwined intimately and for all time with the lives of the central figures in the Bahá’í Faith and is deeply rooted in the Persian garden tradition.

Gardens of the Spirit captures that history for the first time in one volume using stunning photographs and archival images and drawing upon details from published histories, biographies, and memoirs, in addition to documents and official communications from the Bahá’í World Centre.
