The garden is such a secluded atmosphere where you can enter different harmonious areas throughout the garden and follow your own zen to where it takes you. The culture of the environment is very soothing, clean and welcoming. The staff are friendly and the open tour gives a better understanding of the garden along with the many intricate details entailed inside the garden walls.
