There is a place where the serenity rules
Where conversations with God frequently
Where spirits of ancestors guard the meadow
Where mother earth breaths energy
Relentlessly, all day and night
Morning full of glimmer
Colors indecisively dancing with rays and water
White wings fly the sky
Peace drops effortlessly in the mind
Sounds of silence, all day
Evening full of glitter
Spirits indecisively hovering over trees and water
Moonlight dance of serendipity
Body surrenders to sweetness of sleep
Whispers of solitude, all night
Spring of water
Beauty of tree
Purified and united

A marble piece inscribed with the symbolic name of the chapel was placed under at the altar center.

The garden has more than 5000 plants and more than 20 fruit trees. If one is lucky, a rare Atlas Moth (Atticus Atlas) can be spotted in the garden or on walls of the terraces. The Atlas moth is one of the largest lepidopterans (an order of insects that includes butterflies and moths). It can have a wingspan measuring up to 24 cm.
One of the amazing features of the garden is a three-in-one tree in the south of the estate. The tree and its roots are the logo of the estate as it was the tree that first captured the attention of the owner when first visiting the site. Local legend has it that the local king had some daugthers but no son to carry out the patriarcal line. Following the royal shaman’s advice, the king planted 3 different seeds and if the seeds managed to grow together then a male heir was to be expected. The seeds grew well together into one with intertwining branches and shared roots, and the king soon got a son thereafter. Up to this day, the big root of the trees are clearly visible spanning even to outside the estate and the branches of trees continue to intertwine with each other.
