Apparently San Diego staged an expo in 1915 to celebrate the completion of Panama Canal. They built a lot of these very grandeur, exotic & impressive buildings to host this extravaganza. Now a lot of these spectacular buildings have been converted into museums and art galleries. This also includes a…
few theatres and botanical gardens.
The botanical garden that looks like a huge (& expensive-looking) bird cage if you view it from farway. Too bad the garden was closed by the time we got there. But the garden itself is supposedly very pretty.
On a beautiful sunny Saturday, there are certainly a lot of people around this place even though most of the museums, gardens, etc. are closed.
There was this semi-amphitheatre-like (or rather Greek-like) outdoor performance stage with rather intricate carvings & excellent for wedding photos! It somehow reminds me of the Fresh Water museum on the National Taiwan University (NTU) campus in Taipei City.
The carvings on the architecture.
I love the color of this fountain. The color really stands out.
An Opera-house looking architecture. It somehow has this Hungarian-feel to it.. maybe it’s the pastel pink color. :p
Same as above.
