Retrospection & Reflection | Khorog City Park, Tajikistan: His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan on the vision of the park

“… a place for personal reflection, for genuine relaxation, and for deep renewal. Our objective from the start was to ensure that this would always be a tranquil green space, serving all of the people who live in Khorog and all of those who visit this city.

“Our vision for Khorog Park is that visitors will truly think of the time they spend here as “quality time,” in the fullest sense of that word – moments in their lives during which their spirits will be deeply enriched, hours filled with experiences that they will both, enjoy and remember, as times of blessing.”
