Chinese Garden, Portland

These snaps are of Portland Chinese Garden. Garden includes nine buildings and more than 500 species of plants and a lake in the middle. The garden, which is called Lan Su Yuan in Chinese means "Portland Suzhou Garden", also known as the "Garden of Awakening Orchids". There are 5 Elements in a Chinese Garden, Stone, Water, Plants, Architecture and Literature. These 5 Elements are used in the Portland Chinese Gardens in order to balance nature with humanity. The Gardens take up one city block in Portland’s Chinatown, making this the largest Classical Chinese Garden outside of China. Last two snaps shows the view of Portland downtown and bridges.
