Explore - Mughal Gardens and Cartwright Hall, Bradford
Opened in 2001, this unique attraction combines water, colourful plantings in an architectural style similar to that developed by India's Mughal Dynasty (1526-1858). This is the first Mughal Water Garden to be built in the north of England. It exhibits the skill and artistry of the garden's original creators.
The gardens lie adjacent to Cartwright Hall, Bradford's Civic Art Gallery. The gallery has a creative rolling programme of temporary exhibitions on the ground floor whilst the upper galleries are reserved for the permanent exhibits. These galleries include items from the International Arts Collection which has a large holding of contemporary British South Asian Art and works by Indian artists including Bhupen Khakar, Jamini Roy, Sutapa Biswas, Permindar Kaur. Also featured are twentieth century decorative arts including a rich collection of South Asian textiles and garments, silver and gold, ceramics and more.
