Influenced by early Turkish Islamic Gardens of the 10th century, this lavish and evocative garden features traditional Islamic elements including strong geometric architecture, a pavilion to provide shade, and fountains and rills for cooling water. A high wall containing a window grille surrounds the garden, providing privacy and enclosure and representing the nature of paradise to be secret and hidden away. The hard landscaping is softened with herbaceous planting representing rich flora that blooms in Turkey. Flower beds containing blooms with bold, hot tones provide energy and excitement. A plane tree, cypresses, and fruit trees offer shade, structure and height. The whole provides a modern approach capturing the essence of all that early Turkish gardens means to Turks and represents Turkish culture, history and rich flora: an important horticultural destination and reason to visit Turkey.
