The Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden


Tour an amazing classical Chinese garden at this site produced by the Virtual Museum of Canada. The site walks you through the philosophical and aesthetic principles that went into creating this Ming-era (A.D. 1368-1644) "scholar's retreat," which combines natural elements and architecture to achieve distinctive symbolic values. Beautiful views of the garden accompany descriptions of its layout, meanings, plants, and animal life. The site also offers related explanations on feng shui, Daoism (a.k.a. Taoism), and Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, the person often called "The Father of Modern China."
