For those who have been following my blog, they would know that I have a special interest in bridges.
The Nan Lian Garden (南蓮園池) is a Chinese Classical Garden in Diamond Hill, Kowloon, Hong Kong. The garden has an area of 3.5 hectares. It is designed in the Tang Dynasty-style with hills, water features, trees, rocks and wooden structures.
The garden was a joint project of the Chi Lin Nunnery and the Hong Kong Government. It opened to the public on November 14, 2006.
So, this is a relatively new garden and one of my favorite gardens too.
I have taken pictures there but my photos are a lot less attractive than those taken by my friend CP Chan.
This Tang dynasty styled footbridge has a tiled cover. It looks elegant and aesthetically attractive and pleasing.
What is particularly interesting is that on top of the roof is a pagoda like structure.
If you look at the top of the pagoda, you will find a cock standing up there.
The silhouette below, I think, is the main subject of my post – a cock in silhouette beautifully portrayed.
