Ali in Arabic calligraphy

A chahar-bagh (chahar meaning four and bagh meaning garden in Persian) is a quadrilateral garden inspired by the four gardens of Paradise described in Chapter 55 of the Qur’an, Surat al-Rahman, the chapter of the All-Merciful.

As the great 13th century mystical poet, Jalal ad-Din Rumi wrote, “The real gardens and flowers are within, they are in man’s heart and not outside.”
