It is an okay stop to make. I wouldn't plan on being there for very long. We saw the entire place while stopping a few times to take pictures and were still out of there in about 20 minutes - after paying the $20 for the two of us to get in.
The occasion for our visit was a memorial service for an uncle. I found the gardens to be a very appropriate venue for this service. It would an equally appropriate setting for a wedding.

It makes you want to sit on the benches along the trails and listen to the silence. Meditative. Tea plantation, buildings, rock garden, the waterfalls and the Koi are how I imagine... 更多
