Before the advent of modernism, religions were known as the theoretical sources of gardening. Chinese Gardening is one of the most important legacies in Asian culture and art. It seems that landscape design in China is somewhat influenced by the tendency toward nature in Buddhist, Taoist, and Confucian ideas. The research method in this paper is a case study and analytical-descriptive research. Information is gathered through documentary and library studies and the logical deduction of data. The data are measured by a review of Chinese garden plans.
Further, by analyzing the elements and generalities of the Chinese garden, it is referred to how the thoughts are influenced by the formation of symbols and the form of the garden. Studies have shown that China's landscape is the concrete embodiment of Taoist, Confucian, and Buddhist thoughts, which have shown itself in the form of elements, orders, relationships, and locations between the components.
