Top: The Garden of Allah which occupied a 3.5 acre site on the Sunset Strip between Crescent Heights and Havenhurst Avenue, as it appeared in 1935. Bottom: The Garden was bulldozed in 1959 to make way for the 1960s-style shopping center that is there now. It was a blight on the landscape the minute it was completed, and remains one today.
The Garden of Allah Hotel was located at 8152 Sunset Blvd. [map].
