A new 18th cy Garden in Khajuraho

15 Dec 2005

Tiwari ka Bagh is the 10th "Lost Garden"

During his last visit, Geert Robberechts "discovered" a new 18th cy garden in Khajuraho.

In the beginning of December, Geert Robberechts and Ameet Babbar (INTACH) were once again in Khajuraho for continuing negotations with the owners of the so-called "Lost Gardens". It came to an unexpected result : one of the spokesmen, Mr. Ganesh Pathak, pointed to the existence of a similar 18th century garden : the Tiwari ka Bagh. This domain is really a gem, with all the typical features of the other "Lost Gardens". Next to it lies another walled garden, unfortunately completely cleaned up, and hence less interesting from an historical point of view. The first contacts with the owner, Mr. Tiwari, went very well. And we expect to include this garden in our project in a very near future.
