“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

I cannot believe people don't visit this place! It is not at all guarded and secured the path seems to be barely walked on! Nobody seems to see any value in this. I hope people will visit this place and it will be better secured!

“Amazing structure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

This is not a huge pond. It is not a spectacular sight. But take the time to look how each stone is individually carved to fit and make the perfect concentric lotus shape. An engineering marvel.

“Just a dirty pond”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

No lotus flowers in this pond, just swampy green water with a couple of water lillies. Not worth the walk over to look at it.
