The Baha'i World Center is a place of pilgrimage for the Baha'is – adherents of the Baha'i religion. This center is famous for its gardens, which are located on Mount Carmel.
Many of the sites of the Baha'i World Center, including the Tomb of the Bab and the terraces, were inscribed on the UNESCO list in 2008.
World Center the Baha'is were located on the mountain as a result of the imprisonment of the founder of the Baha'i religion – Baha'u'llah, who was sentenced to life imprisonment in the colony of Akko in 1868. Bahullah selected the site for the tomb of the Bab.
In 1963, the Universal House of Justice was chosen as the first governing body of the Baha'i religion. It was also recognized by the Israeli government.
