Of all the famous rock-gardens in history, only one has survived. This is the so-called “Lion Garden” in SuZhou. The Lion Grove Garden was built in 1342 during the Yuan Dynasty by a Zen Buddhist monk, Wen Tianru, in memory of his teacher Abbot Zhongfeng. At that time the garden was part of the Bodhi Orthodox Monastery.
Here are some shots I made during a short trip to Suzhou recently.
Deep fried dough and rice porridge. Seems like the guy is enjoying it a lot.
The shot was taken at the local vegetable market at 6:40 am.
