The japanese gardens are so relaxing and beautiful. I love them very much. Is there actually a signification to the shape of the gravels?

Thank you for the comments!!

lezard,
I suppose some shapes of gravels have a certain meaning but the other have no meaning. The raked gravels are originally designed for meditation of Buddhist monks. Many gravels on the garden means the flowing water, which means that things are always changing and nothing remains unchanged.

It's sheer poetry.
