Lotus flowers, as a symbol of holy and pure and gentleman in Chinese traditional culture, are loved by most of Chinese people since ancient China. Zhou Dunyi, a great thinker in Song Dynasty, has written a famous poem called Ode to the Lotus Flower and one of the sentence means ‘I just love lotus because she grows in mud, yet never contaminates with it. She floats on waving water, yet never dances with it’. From them on, it becomes a renowned sentence to praise lotus and has passed down through the ages.

Now, the lotus flowers are blossoming in the poor near West Hill Park in Guilin. Lots of photographers gather here to capture the most beautiful moments of the lotus.
