The Friendship Garden

16 Feb

there are a lot of interesting places in my hometown Kuching..  one of them is the Taman Sahabat (Friendship Garden)..  the garden is situated at Jalan Song and it is built to commemorate the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Malaysia and China..

the arch at the main entrance..

the Chinese characters on the signboard means “Malaysia-China Friendship Garden”..

the Chinese guarding lion..  symbol of protection..

it is not just a common park for jogging..

but also full with unique architectural buildings..

an ancient Chinese style building..
