The beauty of the gardens can not be just experienced in over a computer screen, going to this sacred site should adorn everyone's bucket list. I myself have walked the path to the Wailua Falls in Hawaii, an area with similar plants and rivers and ponds. Pictures depict a great landscape, but in person you feel in peace with the world. You feel as though you have reached true harmony and that for the time that you are there, everything is right with the universe. Walking through these gardens would undoubtedly have the same feeling.
