Britain’s largest collection of Islamic gardens, terraces and courtyards is to be opened today by Prince Charles at a new Muslim education hub in the capital.
The Aga Khan Centre in King’s Cross, designed by Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki, will have six landscaped open spaces inspired by different Muslim cultures from around the world.
There will also be four other havens of calm surrounding the ten-storey building, in what is the heart of one of London’s biggest regeneration districts.
Today’s inauguration will be attended by Prince Shah Karim Al Hussaini, also known as Aga Khan, the spiritual leader of the Shia Ismaili Muslims and London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
