My visit to this place is proof that Lonely Planet is completely out of touch with reality. I was riding my bike out of town and saw the sign for the "gardens". LP said "totally worth a visit".
AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL!! Overgrown.. Can't tell the weeds from the plants. Rarely saw a plant description sign and if I did it was rusted over and barely legible. Walkways are so slippery you almost want to crawl (except the Mosquitos are in hot pursuit). Lily pond an empty cesspool, "temple" non-existent. Herb garden a joke! To top it off I had to endure a worker screaming out some song at the top of his lungs while he "worked" (and he seriously must have been tone-deaf!).
Save yourself ...... Avoid this place!!
