George Harrison Garden

George Harrison Garden

When the late Beatle George Harrison bought the Manor, he particularly wanted Krishna devotees to have the benefit of the peaceful garden surroundings to meditate on Krishna. Hence, when George passed away at the age of 58 on 29th November 2001, the Manor decided to create a special garden in his memory, which would be set aside for quiet prayer and contemplation.

The chosen location is a shady woodland dell which George himself had liked, and the garden was opened by his widow, Olivia. It includes a series of eight artworks celebrating the diverse aspects of George’s spiritual life, aligned with the eight aspects of devotion to Krishna and the eight couplets of the Hare Krishna mantra.
