Gardens at the Lama Temple – 雍和宮

Beijing witnesses immense colorful foliage during autumn. I was pleasantly surprised to see the variety of colors, being splashed by the canopy of tress. It’s like an artist decided he would paint each boulevard with a different shade of green or with various shades ranging from yellow to red.

The lush green foliage of early Autumn is refreshing and looks exuberant. Not only does the canopy of the trees provide solace from the sunlight, but it also is a splendid delight to any onlooker. The vivid colors fill you with a sense of calm & imbibes a sense of appreciation towards the wonders of nature.

When I walked along the Boulevard at the Lama Temple – i could not resist but notice the lush green foliage at the immaculately manicured garden. The strategically placed tress along the path, with brown trunks had centuries of stories embedded in them. It looked as though several years ago a gardener with an immense foresight was meticulous in designing the landscape, and visualized how the imperial gardens would eventually span out over the decades.

Apart from the enticing 16th century architecture – these colored luscious trees effortlessly draw the attention of the photographers and nature lovers.The birds camoflaged within the foliage, make a surprise appearance. The chirping of the  birds is music to the ears, the version of the songs they sing take prominence over the faint but persistent chants resonating all around.
