What people are saying:

The famous landscape of Long'an Temple is the Kushanshui. In fact, there are many courtyards, but the most famous here, the style is really very Han and Tang. The wind and dry landscape of the stone garden, the layout of the scene is very delicate, the moss and pond are quite quiet.
