“A tranquil and lovely place to spend a few hours.”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

The sculptures, which are wonderfully executed and emotive, are aesthetically arranged in the garden and although it is not very large garden, one can easily spend a few hours there after seeing the sculptures, just reading or enjoying the tranquility.

You must visit this place if you need a quite retreat surrounded by beautiful lands and art. Stop, breathe, listen to the birds and the water.
