The Mediterranean city of Haifa is Israel's third largest city and lies at the base of Mount Carmel. Haifa was conquered by the Crusaders in the early 12th century and later fortified under Ottoman rule. In the late 19th century it became an important refuge for Jewish immigrants. Between 1918 and 1948 Haifa was taken over by the British in the occupation of Palestine. Haifa is also the headquarters for the Baha'i Faith whose followers believe that no religion has a monopoly on the truth, and aim to reconcile the teachings of all holy men.
