World’s northernmost Islamic garden opens in Canada

Project organisers hope garden will promote tolerance and spark interest in Islam

MONTREAL, Canada – How do you make thousands of years of rich traditions relevant to people today?

That was the task put before a group of architects, horticulturalists and designers, as it set out to build what would become a 12-acre Islamic garden housed in a most unexpected place.

The Aga Khan Garden was built on the grounds of the University of Alberta Botanic Garden, southwest of Edmonton in western Canada, after several years of planning and 18 months of construction.
