it's been re-built several years ago, and in the summer you could see lotus floating on the lake. they are pink and very nice. the old and the children could have a stroll there

It was a Royal Garden in Tang Dynasty, civilians could also visit it in those days. Actually, it was a contact palce for nobilities and civilians.

Make sure you walk around the lake and over the bridge, and then take the boat back. everything is beautiful and dirt cheap. Make sure you walk to the top of the main temple. Beautifulview. Also, very inexpensive souveniers inside the temple near the Buddah (we bought replica's of the hanging bells with a miniature gong for about $5 and they actually work). I know, simple pleasures for simple people....hee hee…
