we kindly request you to share any knowledge you have, any web links, books etc. on how were traditional gardens for temple Deities planned and designed?
Srila Prabhupada writes that in India traditional temples have land and gardens for the pleasure of the Deities and also to provide flowers and other things for making offerings for the Lord.
We own a plot of land and have been worshiping Deities for a couple of years and growing a few things for Them, but now we would like to seriously plan a nice garden for Them, for the inspiration and pleasure of the visiting devotees and for providing for Deity offerings.
We are in a different climate conditions (North of Europe), but still would like to come as close as possible to a traditional design, since traditional things are most dear to the Lord.
Thank you very much
Your humble servant
