|When you first walk into the Forbidden Gardens|
|Calming of the heart. |
This was the first thing you see before you enter the Imperial City. It was so pretty. You could see inside the buildings and see tiny people going about their daily chores. There was running water over the small rocks. It was calming of the heart it's name sake.
I'm not sure what each building was made of. You could walk up to each building and look at it up close. I was told that Ira Poon wanted Chinese craftsmen to come over to the United States and build each one of the buildings. But the Chinese Government said no. So, he had them built there and shipped to the United States. Not sure if that is true or not.
Many of the solders that stood around each palace had either been broken or stolen or knocked down. Still it was amazing to see hundreds of them everywhere. They looked like they were ceramic. Each one had a face and long robes. Some were holding weapons or flags.
This was behind the Forbidden Gardens. It was like a grave yard of houses. Covered with grass clippings and weather had taken a toll on each of them. This is just a few that had been discarded and left to rot.
Until next time.
