Edinburgh Labyrinth

Located within George Square Gardens in the South Side of Edinburgh, the Edinburgh Labyrinth was constructed by the University of Edinburgh between 2004-05. It is based on the 13th C. labyrinth laid in the floor of Chartres Cathedral in France and is intended to give a chance for reflection and stress-relief for those who walk the path. The project was initiated in 2002 by Rev. Di Williams, the University Chaplain, and the design drawn by University architect Ron Chisholm. The labyrinth was built using granite sets to mark the lines with stones set in a resin bond between. It is bounded by a yew hedge. There are four simple oak benches around the path and an interpretation panel at the entrance.
