The Labyrinth is one of Chandor Gardens modern features, and was completed in 2008.
Placed atop the old parking lot and encircling the Stone of the Immortals, the Labyrinth is fabricated from antique Thurber bricks, the same type that Douglas Chandor used in many other areas of the garden.Crushed granite was chosen to form the path, for the quality of sound when walked upon.
The Chandor Labyrinth is unique, differing from traditional labyrinths in its assymetrical and compositional aspects.
Many people confuse labyrinths and mazes. A maze is a puzzle that pits the participant against the designer, often involving dead ends and back-tracking paths. A labyrinth is a meditative walking path that does not attempt to trick the participant. Traditionally, a labyrinth walker traverses the path to the end, and returns to the point of origin.
