Tools of the Trade

Garden ToolsI have posted a few pictures of the gravel in the gardens being raked, it’s about time I show you a better picture of the rakes being used. The flat rakes are used to level out the gravel, while the rakes with the “teeth” are used to make lines. This kind of old-style broom is used all over the temple for cleaning up fallen leaves (or flower petals!) and stray gravel.
