The South Australian Garden of Remembrance

Some photos I've tooked yesterday around 5pm from Centennial Park cemetery. It was private cremated graves of South Australian soldiers who died during war. I'd thought it's just a simple grave but when I'm almost inside it was beautiful place to look around. I was alone when I enter but I can't continue further all the way down the place taking photos because I'm a little bit scare to move on(lol). I return to the car park to invite my hubby and encourage him to accompany me inside as I was scare, he had a laugh on me. Lucky, I didn't have a hard time to  encourage him. We went inside step by step admiring the place and the design of simple water falls and fountain they have made. The walls standing were created as a cremated grave back to back of how many thousands dead soldiers.

Here are the series of photos from SA Garden of Remembrance:

As you notice some shade of trees leaves and branches on some photos has a color yellow for MYM entry

The plaque of written history of the cremated bodies in the garden

Behind the reflection pool stands the plaque history

Pool water drops endlessly and flows till the end part of the garden

My hubby reading the history of the garden

From the Reflection pool, water flows about 300 meters length until end fountain

The close up view of the cremated grave wall

Hubby assuming that he is a ghost in the garden hehe
Every wall has its garden, I saw this one lot of garden that has only grown a lily flower
In the middle is a shade haouse where there is a diamond shape fountain that also connects from the reflection pool fountain that flows till the end.
Closer view of the diamond fountain, there are 3 round metals which has an engrave and symbolize of something I think which I didn't pay attention what it was written there.
A few steps from the shade house you reach the end where there is another round fountain that spins forever.

The end fountain looks like

The sky nestles gently in the reflection pool.


A mist, a drop, a river, the sea—
All of this water, a gift for me!

Some snow, a berg, or maybe some ice—
Anything frozen, that would be nice!
