The garden boasts a large number of lilies from Thailand and foreign countries. The lily is believed to have connected with various cultures in this world for more than 5,000 years. Ancient Egyptians considered it to be holy and held it as a fertility symbol as the flower thrives well along the sacred Nile River. In India, the lily is the national flower, conveying a special meaning in Hinduism as the image of each supreme god, Brahman, is seated on the lily flower. The lily is also a sacred flower for the Buddhists. When the lord Buddha was born he was able to walk and every pace he made there were lily flowers coming up to support the young lord.
