The Peace Garden at the Muslim Burial Ground Horsell Common Woking Virtual Tour

Built in 1915, and extensively restored in 2014 with an Islamic-inspired memorial peace garden installed in November 12th 2015, this Grade II listed burial ground was created for Indian Army soldiers who died fighting for the British during WWI.

His Royal Highness The Earl of Wessex KG GCVO, officially opened an Islamic-style Peace Garden at the beautifully restored Muslim Burial Ground in Horsell Common.

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

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

I hope you enjoy this Google virtual Tour especially now that it has been captured, documented and placed online for all to see.  Please do share this for all to enjoy.
