    * Water Clock

    Time, like an everflowing stream….

    這是水鐘的模擬動畫 While water clocks date back to ancient Egypt and Greece, none can match the museums in accuracy or innovation. Built by French physicist-turned-artist Bernard Gitton, the 10.5-foot-tall water clock located right to the entrance to the Botanical Garden, is the first water clock in Taiwan. It always attracts crowds of visitors. Even passers-by may stop to take a glance at its beauty.
