The Peace Garden at the Muslim Burial Ground

Built in 1915, and extensively restored in 2014 with an Islamic-inspired memorial peace garden installed in 2015, this Grade II listed burial ground was created for Indian Army soldiers who died fighting for the British during WWI.

It has special interest for its interpretation of Islamic  architechture in early 20th century Britain, inspired by the Mughal style so successfully employed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.

The graves were removed to the military secton of Brookwood Cemetery in 1968, and the atmospheric site can now be enjoyed as a tranquil peace garden.

Directions: Monument Road, Maybury GU21 5LW. Just north of the Basingstoke Canal, or a 10-minute waslk from the Shah Jahan Mosque.
