Zen garden in Zuisen-ji temple

I visited the zen garden of Zuisen-ji temple which is called the Temple of Flowers.

This rock garden was designed by Muso Soseki who was one of the eminent zen teacher and garden architect in the golden era of Zen Buddhism of Japan.

A pond, caves, islands and a waterfall (not shown) are symbolically created in a huge mass of rock. There are three little wooden bridges across the pond.
