Hamilton Gardens - Indian Char Bagh Garden
New Zealand

By Aaron Radford - www.theofficialphotographers.co.nz

A rainbow coloured Persian carpet of flowers spreading out from a distinctive chalk coloured Pavilion - this is the image of the Char Bagh that has become an iconic image of Hamilton Gardens. The 'Char Bagh' or 'enclosed four part' garden was the original Paradise Garden. It is sometimes known as the 'Universal Garden', not only for its widespread and long period of use, but also because it was regarded as an icon for the universe itself. This form of garden spread throughout the Muslim world between the 8th and 18th centuries. The complex symbolism behind this form of garden has its very ancient roots in three of the world's great religions - Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Be sure to look up at the Pavilion's patterned ceiling and enjoy stunning views of the River from its ornate benches.
