This round square is at the bottom of the 9 lower terraces (below the Golden-domed Shrine) and is actually the end of the gardens from this side.

The Bahá'í World Centre is the name given to the spiritual and administrative center of the Bahá'í Faith. The World Center consists of the Shrine of Bahá'u'lláh near Akko (Acre), Israel, the Shrine of the Báb and its gardens on Mount Carmel in Haifa, Israel, and various other buildings in the area including the Arc buildings.

The Shrine of Bahá’u’lláh in Akko (Acre) is the spiritual focal point for Bahá’ís all over the world, and Haifa is the seat of the administrative institutions that govern the entire community. The two cities together constitute the center of Bahá’í pilgrimage because they contain the most holy places, the heritage sites and the source of guidance for the community.

Much of the international governance and coordination of the Bahá'í Faith occurs at the Bahá'í World Center. These include decisions that affect the religion on a global level, and the study and translation of the Bahá'í holy writings. The Universal House of Justice, representing the supreme governing body of the Bahá'í Faith, resides in Haifa, Israel. The Bahá'í World Center is also the current destination for Bahá'í pilgrimage.

The Bahá'í World Center has its historical origins in the area that was once Ottoman Syria. This dates back to the 1850s and 1860s when the Shah of Iran and the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, ‘Abdu’l-‘Aziz, successively exiled Bahá'u'lláh from Iran to the fortress of Acre ( Now Israel) for lifetime incarceration.

Many of the locations at the Bahá'í World Center, including the terraces and the Shrine of the Báb which constitute the north slope of Mount Carmel, were inscribed on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List in July 2008, with over half a million visitors a year.

The Bahá'í gardens in Haifa comprise a staircase of nineteen terraced gardens extending all the way up the northern slope of Mount Carmel. The golden-domed Shrine of the Báb, the resting place of the Prophet-Herald of the Bahá’í Faith, stands on the central terrace, looking across Haifa bay towards Akko. (Acre)
From the Bahá'í gardens there is a spectacular panoramic view of Haifa, the Galilee Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea.

The length of the gardens is one kilometer and they are maintained by 70 gardeners and 30
volunteers.
