About the project

Kishan Bagh is a restored set of sand dunes that had collected at the base of a hill. The objective was to plant it up with grasses and shrubs in order to achieve the look and feel of a ‘Roee’ habitat, which is what you find out in the Thar Desert near Jaisalmer. We also wanted to lead visitors through this landscape in a manner that would help them understand various features and processes of a sandy desert.
