Gardens in Taiwan

These are photographs from a garden in Taiwan that was once the estate of a wealthy family. The garden features classic Taiwanese architecture and landscaping.

This is a Theater that is in the middle of a pond.

Chinese Calligraphy above painted windows

This is an example of classic Chinese architecture. These decorative ceiling pieces are all wooden and are used to support the roof.

A copper bell with Chinese dragons

Candy Cigarettes are still very popular among Taiwanese children.

These peacocks were caged to add to the beauty of the garden, like a living flower.
