Suzhou, Lion Grove Garden – 苏州狮子林

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.
