MTL TTL 04: Gardens of Light

Japanese Garden and Lake

I recently revisited the Montreal Botanical gardens for the Lanterns festival.

This was my first visit to this festival and I have to say it was amazing.

Two of the gardens (Chinese and Japanese) were decorated and transformed into authentic festive Asian gardens full of light and magic.

Some parts actually felt like people going to a pilgrimage in China.

Enjoy this photo journal and marvel in another of Montreal’s Treasures. (click on the images to see the High Resolution versions in all their glory)
