A day trip to the New York Chinese Scholars garden

on the way to the forest path

All we can hear is the sound of bamboo. The camera is not enough to capture it. Feel it hear it.

We were actually thinking of what to do on a Sunday morning. A walk in the garden was a much-needed thing. Scholars garden was one in my bucket list. The bucket list just goes on to visiting Italy, Japan, China and Korea. This place was a capsule form of the traditional Chinese house. I always have a thing for these cultures and traditions. Even though I don’t follow my traditions.  It’s good to see others.

The New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden features magnificent rockery that resembles mountains that inspired the poetry and paintings of Confucian, Buddhist and Taoist monks and other scholars. Visitors can explore eight pavilions, a bamboo forest path, waterfalls, a Koi-filled pond, Chinese calligraphy, and a variety of Ghongshi scholar’s rocks including a 15-foot formation that towers over the central courtyard.

 

is this place real? I really have a doubt. it’s like dream.

Thanks to the unknown photographer 🙂
