There are  twelve gardens surrounding the structure, converging around it in the huge petal crown from which the Matrimandir arises.  In 1969, when discussing the gardens, the Mother indicated that they would have to be of such quality and beauty that people visiting them would experience, physically and concretely, the significance of each garden:

"One must know how to move from consciousness to consciousness."
