Landscaping of Hindu Religious Places

typically Hindu tepmples were situated either on mountains or forests or river banking institutions.In old times, the temples were constructed this kind of locations faraway from human habitations for providing a peaceful, peaceful and pleasant environment also for making sure a detailed bond between man and nature.Hindu temples are connected with trees eg Ficus benghalensis, Ficus Religiosa, Aegle marmelos,Azardirachta indica, Temple tree, Bauhinia spp, etc, natural herbs eg Vinca rosea, Nerium spp etc.The gigantic trees like ficus spp and some other trees tend to be closely connected with temples since time immemorial.The combined scent, the blossoms and the leaf litter on a lawn gives a pleasing knowledge to a pilgrim or tourist.

But contemperoray gardeners and landscapists are not able to value this aspect while trying gardening at these places, that have become tourist and size pilgrimage facilities in modern times.Most modern gardeners design symmetric gardening with huge lawns and tiled flooring surrounding the tree bases.The representation of trees is very bad compared to the lawns and plants.

Assymmetry must be the guideline while creating gardening near these temples.The asymmetric garden need to have numerous representation of Tree types eg Ficus, Neem, Wood apple,Alexandrian laurel, Jack Fruit, Mango atc spread in an arbitrary fashion.

The absolute most depressing aspect of modern-day temples – they don’t have space for gardening whatsoever, leaving these types of, wherever there is certainly enough room for gardening, attention must be taken not to ever tile or concrete the complete flooring pressing the tree basics! scientifically too the tree base need to have adequate soil surrounding it either to water or manure as well as aeration.Apart from all of these the soil surrounding or that beneath a tree possesses its own microclimate that supports specific flora and fauna.Let just the footpath be tiled while keeping the floor untiled towards the optimum degree possible.

Small spots of natural herbs like Ocimum, Vinca, Jasmine are grown when it comes to daily usage of pilgrims requires for praying towards the god.Another breathtaking destination towards the temple garden are artificially produced pool for growing nelumbium spp which will be considered the flower connected with gods.

Lawn grass be chosen so that the lawn types be tolerant to tree color,and prevent creating open lawns with few plants..try to intersperse the lawn with trees randomly planted in between.

The asymmetric style and a big representation of trees is environmentally significant as they assistance and home many birds alongside organisms.Birds like parrots, cuckoos, woodpecker and occasional monkeys, squirrels all increase an all natural experience and oneness with nature.
