Exquisite Gazebo crafted from single block of Marble

A Gazebo that evokes Decadence and timelessness

A gazebo is a structure, often built in outdoor premises such as park, garden or spacious public areas. The structure resembles pavilions and in general is built in octagonal or turret-shaped. Surfaces Reporter (SR) presents the marble gazebo, crafted by Karara Mujassme, evoking decadence and timelessness.

Architects have always used ornamentation to enliven and inform their work. While architects and interior designers decorate homes with exquisite ornamentation, the outdoor spaces are also not left behind. The Great Grand Gazebo is an awe-inspiring marble gazebo by the Delhi-based Karara Mujassme. Established in 1995, the manufacturer offers timeless outdoor furniture and home decor products.

The Great Grand Gazebo is a pristine marble gazebo inspired by dreamy Victorian gardens. It is the third in a series of marble gazebos created by Karara Mujassme over its 25 year history. This majestic pavilion is the largest of the three, featuring 12 columns, and also boasts of detailed decorative elements.

The Great Grand Gazebo has been crafted from Proconnesian marble from Turkey and it took 5-6 artisans over two years to complete this piece of art.

Crafted from a single block of marble, carefully selected from the mines especially for the desired colour and density, the entire gazebo features a uniform hue throughout the pavilion.

The pavilion has been designed and crafted entirely in India by Indian artisans, using the age-old European technique of compass cutting.



The front and back façades of the gazebo are accentuated by exquisitely detailed Romanesque arches supported on columns. Each column and arch is unique and features distinctive elements. For instance, the pavilion’s four main columns depict the four seasons—spring, summer, fall, and winter.

The arches are adorned with carvings depicting paradisiacal scenes complete with angels.

The intricately crafted caryatid marble columns and floral details add elegance and artistry to the gazebo.

Furthermore, small slabs of marble are placed between each column that can be used as holders for decorative pieces such as planters or urns. These platforms also offer a spectacular spot to sit and gaze out into the garden. 

The Great Grand Gazebo is a thought-provoking and intriguing pavilion, with surprises sprinkled in every corner. It brings the charm of Europe to India. As, this gazebo is crafted to stand the test of time, and can withstand the extremes of climates as well as natural disasters, it is the ideal heirloom to be passed from one generation to the next.
