Culture (FUNCI) at the College of Islamic Studies, Hamad bin Khalifa Uni­versity, Education City.


The exhibition reflects the importance of gardens in Islam and the Muslims' interest in them by showing the plant species used in Spain during the Islamic period, as well as the irrigation system in the gardens and some of the tools used by Muslims in Andalusia for agri­culture. The exhibition is an expression of the peaceful coexistence of different cultures, respect for the environment and historical heritage.
