Biodiversity Park in Hyderabad is a 13-acre park with trees from various parts of the world. It is divided into four sectors, with over 200 varieties of trees planted by scientists from different UN countries. Many people come here for their morning or evening walks, or to spend time with family and friends.

The park also has the iconic 32-feet high Biodiversity Pylon at the entrance.

The pylon symbolises the creation of matter, the elements of nature and the evolution of species. It depicts the evolution starting from an atom to various life forms, including human beings. It also has a model of DNA on the top.

History of Biodiversity Park Hyderabad

Hyderabad Biodiversity Park was established in 2012, during the Convention on Biological Diversity. The scientists who were a part of the convention planted the trees here. The then Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, inaugurated Biodiversity Park with the commemorative 32-feet pylon you can see as you enter through the gate.

Architecture of Pylon in Biodiversity Park

The pylon is an artistic expression of life on earth and its evolution. This is an elliptical structure made of Etah Gold limestone. At its top, you'll see a double helix representing the human DNA. And at the base, you have five concentric rings representing the five elements of nature – Air, Earth, Fire, Water and Ether.

1. Ring of Air – It is the outermost ring, which is represented by 12 trees. Then, 12 pedestals along the ring also contribute to Biodiversity Park architecture. They represent 12 hours of the day. And on the stair skirting, the names of 193 countries are engraved on polished Black granite.

2. Ring of Earth – It is an ambulatory path with a Black granite surface in antique finish. The width of the path is 6 feet, which represents the average height of human beings. And the pathway is engraved with the names of all 191 species listed in the ‘Tree of Life’.

3. Ring of Fire – It is represented by the Sun and its rays. The base of the representation is made up of Black granite. And the colours of fire, the sun rays, are portrayed with Red granite and Yellow limestone.

4. Ring of Water – It is a water basin surrounding the pylon. The structure is filled with blue water representing the waters in the ocean. And Black granite, cut in the shape of continents, floats on the surface. It represents our world without any political boundaries.

5. Ring of Ether – It is a fan-like structure, having two levels with empty space between them. The Upper Ether level is made of Yellow limestone, and the Lower Ether level is made up of stacked slabs of Black Granite.

Apart from the rings of the five elements, a mural wall is also a part of the architecture. This tapering wall is made of Etah Gold limestone, and it forms the slope between the Ring of Fire and the Ring of Water. This wall has engraved Phylum graphics which depict the three aspects of biodiversity: Species (Prani), System (Prakruthi) and Structure (Antarlaya).
