Is Bab buried in Haifa, Israel?

1) On 11th July 1850, the remains of the Báb were removed from the Tabriz, where he had been executed two days previous, and transported to Milan. The remains would subsequently be transported to Tehran, Isfahan, Kirmanshah, Baghdad, Damascus, Beirut and eventually Acre in 1899. On March 21, 1909, the remains were then interred in a special tomb, the Shrine of the Báb, erected for this purpose by 'Abdu'l-Bahá, on Mount Carmel in present-day Haifa.

2) While it is true that Bahiyyih Khánum was entrusted with the most confidential matters of the Faith, such as being charged with secretly housing the remains of the Báb in her room for over a decade.
