What is a Pergoda?

The term ‘pergoda’ is derived from Hindi and refers to a type of hut with plaited bamboo walls and a sloped roof. While pagodas originated in the Far East, pergodas were created by the British during colonial times in India.

In traditional UK garden design, pergodas are often used as dedicated sheltered seating areas, outdoor dining spaces, or summer rooms. They are also popular for outdoor wedding ceremonies. Classic pergodas are typically constructed from wooden decking with vertical timber supports and a solid timber slat roof, often painted or stained in various colors. Modern pergodas feature aluminum frames, providing a contemporary finish to garden spaces. A notable feature is their design, which often reflects their Indian origins.

Pergolas and pergodas are similar concepts, both designed to provide additional shade for outdoor spaces and to serve as striking focal points in the garden. The key difference is that a pergoda has a solid roof made of slats.
