The garden is massive, intricate, and laid out with such precision and thought that it kind of blows my mind. To add to it, I got there so early it was nearly empty, it was so quiet and serene to walk down the paths and listen to birds sing instead of people chattering. The birds were only occasionally interrupted by church bells from around the city, which is another ...
