Unlike the symmetrical Water Gardens, the Bolder Gardens comprises a small scenic forest with meandering pathways winding between massive boulders and through old-world, picturesque rock arches. Many of the boulders are dotted with long lines of notches. These once supported the long vanished miniature wooden pavilions. One of these pavilions stood on every boulder. The gardens were home to the monks of Sigriya. Mementoes of this ancient community can still be found amongst the rocks and caves.
