Mandarins grow in the Ismaili Centre's Garden of Fruits, which also includes other species, along with their rich colours and scents.

On a sunny weekend earlier this summer, the gardens at the Ismaili Centre in Lisbon, along with other flourishing green spaces in the surrounding area, participated in the third edition of the Open Gardens Festival, welcoming visitors, and sharing its diverse flora with the public. 

The Aga Khan Trust for Culture commenced conservation and landscaping works at Sunder Nursery in 2007. The area has since flourished into a park comprising of formal and informal gardens, water features, orchards, pavilions, bird habitats, and a sunken amphitheatre for cultural events and festivals. The Mughal-inspired central areas feature marble fountains and flowing water set amidst geometric flower beds, and raised pathways.

His Excellency Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, President of the Portuguese Republic, thanks the Ismaili community for their contributions to the nation.
