Photo of the Week - A Window to China (Sydney, Australia)

The Chinese Garden of Friendship in Darling Harbour near the centre of the bustling city of Sydney was given to Sydney in 1988 as a gift for Australia's bicentennial. It is a tranquil, restful place with beautiful lakes holding reflections of various Chinese temples and weeping trees. There are many points of symbolism as characterises a typical Chinese garden.

@jasperjugan: Thank you.

@iwalk: I think it was designed by the city of Guangzhou which is a sister city of Sydney. I assume they are in the south. It is a really peaceful and beautiful place.
