arlabelraOnly when I came to the church of the Annunciation built on the site of the Virgin Mary’s home, I learned that Jesus had spread Judaism instead of Christianity throughout his life. The image of the Virgin presented by China is entirely the Guanyin of the Chinese child, South Korea is a Korean costume, and Japan is a traditional Japanese costume [smile]. It was raining, and a tear was caught on the statue of the Virgin at the door.

This is the resting place of the Bab, the pioneer of Bahá'íism, and one of the holy places of Bahá'íism. Baha’i religion originated in the first half of the 19th century. In 1844, the Bab and Persia claimed to accept the Apocalypse and began preaching. They were subsequently exiled to Azerbaijan by the authorities and were killed in 1850. Later, a man who claimed to be a Bab ambassador appeared, and that was Hussein Ali, the founder of the Baha’i religion. In 1853, he was exiled by the Ottoman Empire and later moved to Akha. In 1981, he selected a site in Haifa to build a mausoleum. In 2001, after more than 100 years of hard work by several generations of believers, the $250 million Baha’i Garden was completed. The designer Canadian architect William Maxwell designed a white pavilion with a golden dome, which combines Chinese and Western cultures. The simple style of the Persian garden also has the style of a classical European garden. The entire garden is stepped, with 19 floors of platforms, centered on the Bab’s mausoleum, and there are marble-paved steps between the stacked platforms. It is the central axis of the entire garden. If the length from the foot of the mountain to the top is nearly 1 km, the height The height is 225 meters and the geometry is completely symmetrical.

yangniziThe land on both sides of the Jordan River is fertile and the scenery is beautiful, but it is the many historical and religious relics on both sides that make the Jordan River famous. According to legend, the ancient Israelites passed this river and entered Canaan, the “land promised by God”. Jesus was also baptized here before embarking on the thorny road of preaching. Before the Jordan River flows into the Dead Sea, there are two famous bridges across the Jordan River, namely the Abdullah Bridge and the Allenby Bridge. They are the border bridges between Israel and Jordan. Between the two bridges, 8 kilometers away from the desert oasis Jericho, according to legend, Jesus was baptized here.
