Aga Khan Garden Facility Rentals

The newest addition to the U of A Botanic Garden, the Aga Khan Garden is a spectacular 4.8 ha (11.8 acre) feature, with tumbling waterfalls, serene ponds, a canopied terrace, sunken flower beds, secluded amphitheatre, and stunning architectural details in granite and limestone.

Limited facility rental bookings are available in this one-of-a-kind setting - a modern interpretation of traditional Mughal design, and the northernmost Islamic garden in the world.

Bookings are available in several areas of the Aga Khan Garden, for groups of up to 250 (with rain backup) or up to 500 (without rain backup, by special request only.).

Amphitheatre - A beautiful, secluded setting adjoining the Aga Khan Garden, in a natural woodland bowl surrounded by forest, with built-in granite seating.

Talar - Sweeping vistas of the Aga Khan Garden and beyond form the view from the Talar, a stepped terrace with pools and waterfalls, majestic limestone pillars and a vibrant canopy cover.

Mahtabi - Situated at the point where the formal water features of the Aga Khan Garden give way to the naturalized Calla Pond and Bustan (fruit orchard), the Mahtabi platform features intricate, geometric details and gorgeous views.
