Gardens, full of mystery and an intangible magic. The centre piece of the gardens in Haifa is The Shrine of The Bab. This is the most beautiful building I’ve ever seen. It has a strange quality to it, as if it has life, or a presence. I’ve never experienced that from an inanimate object before. But like the Taj Mahal in India, it was a building project invested with such a huge amount of love and designs for the ultimate expression of beauty that it now shimmers with these qualities.
