Zhishan Garden, Taipei

Next door to Taiwan's most famous attraction, the National Palace Museum, is a lovely little garden. It's a reproduction of a typical Song dynasty garden, complete with ponds and pagodas.

One of the lakeside pagodas.

Fowl and fish populate the area, always happy to get a handout.

Here's a nice sculpture depicting a typical transaction from the times, not your usual, heroic theme.

If you can't attract the real thing, time to reproduce it. A concrete crane. And come to think of it, the river also isn't real. It's a slippery slope to authenticity. A Stonehenge-worthy bench layout.

Another angle, another pagoda.
