Abstract (in English)

Historic landscape and gardens always record how people understand the nature. Jingfeng garden in Jianchuan,Yunnan province is such a place where the residents warship the water. It comes into being for the stream beside it, which is the mother river and plays an important role in paddy growing. People selected this place for rain begging and harvesting celebration. They came here in festivals and constructed new temples. In Qing dynasty, it became a public garden with beautiful buildings and watery sights. It records the process of cultural communication between nationalities and the relationship between the paddy nationality and the nature. But this was destroyed in the modern society. The watery sights disappeared because of the tap water factory on the stream. Temples were abandoned and the spirit of the place disappeared with the change of lifestyle. Today, it is necessary to recover the environment and landscape to manifest the spirit of place.
