With the emergence of the sun, life is born and with this emergence, the lotus flower acquires a special meaning and timeless significance. As the bearer of creation, the lotus flower holds a special place in mythology, in nature and in our lives. It symbolizes not only creation, but the timeless and continual process of birth and rebirth. So yours truly of course has to get in on the action and check it out.
I was extremely impressed as there were raised wooden platforms to walk around so as not to disturb the fragile eco-systems in place. The types of flowers at the lotus garden were too numerous to count and in all a very enjoyable experience that any nature lover would enjoy! A highly recommended site for all to participate in flower watching and of course to take on thousand and one photos in the process! On my arrival I had to fight the hoards of spectators but it was ok because the visitors were mainly from some of the nearby nursing homes. It was a joy to share the experience with them and I hope that they felt the same way with me.
