The Bahá’í Gardens
The Bahá’í Gardens were built to provide a fitting approach to and setting for the Shrines in which the founders of the Bahá’í religion are buried. The gardens aim to create a quiet and tranquil environment allowing all the visitors to benefit from peaceful surroundings of the holy places. The gardens are open to the general public without charge - all are welcome.
Recommendations and Reminders
The Bahá’í Gardens are religious sites that are open to the general public without charge. As in most other such sites, visitors are asked to dress modestly, to help keep the place clean and beautiful, and to behave in a manner that is considerate of the sensitivities of others.
Dress: Please wear clothing that covers your shoulders and reaches your knees, with no tears. Because of the pebbled paths and occasionally slippery pavements, we recommend wearing comfortable shoes with good traction. During the summer months, consider bringing a hat and sun screen.
Photography is permitted, except for the interior of the Shrines.
Food and drink: Visitors are welcome to bring their own bottle of water, but drinking other beverages, eating, chewing gum and smoking are not allowed inside the gardens.
Strollers: Entry with strollers is possible only at the main entrance on 80 Hatzionut Avenue, and at the first level of German Colony Plaza on 21 Hagefen Street. For the safety of our visitors, the use of a stroller is not possible on tours due to the steep slope.
Other prohibitions: Kindly do not bring animals or weapons.
Gardens closed: The gardens are closed on Bahá’í holy days and Yom Kippur. They may also be closed temporarily in rainy weather.
