The first of its kind in the Middle East, this peaceful garden displays a variety of plants mentioned in the Holy Qur’an and the prophetic Sunnah

The Islamic Botanical Garden is a beautiful green space composed of nearly 100 different plants, including figs, pomegranates and saffron. The gardens aim to promote reflection, with paved walkways, ornamental pools and narrow waterways inspired by traditional aflaj (irrigation channels).

You can stroll through the grounds and visit the interpretation centre, which features exhibits and touchscreens. There's also a café serving up Arabic cuisine using produce from the gardens, and a library packed with books on plants.

How to get there
