Sights around Lotus Lake, oh, I mean Pond

Well, it should be called Lotus Lake. It is big like a lake, not a pond. And Lotus Lake just sounds better. And it is what I call it mistakingly all of the time.

We began our walk around Lotus Pond from the northern side from the train station.  The path led us all around the lake and past many interesting sights. To the west of the lake are various temples, traditional and modern houses and schools. Below are some of the eye catching treats on offer.
