The rockery in the garden is the most important characteristic. They are in different shapes and go p and down. There are 9 paths and 21 entrances cross the rockeries. The visitors can shuttle between them. The rockery winding around in the park, it makes people feel like they just stand on the mountain.

From the windows we can see one of the features: all the windows are in different shapes. When you look out from the inside to the outside cross the window, it makes the space more far-reaching.
