This garden was described by Roger Anger, the chief architect of Auroville and Matrimandir, as a place where a child could have an initiatory experience, a place of wonder, a garden for discovering the unexpected.

The garden is in four sections and lies between the Unity garden and oval road, spreading in a japanese fan shape from the office to the west gate.
