The Floating Rock Garden of Ryloth is a tourist attraction famous throughout the Outer Rim. The site is the result of a unique atmospheric effect caused by wind, blowing through the huge tunnels in the planet's surface, allowing the rocks to float in the air. Due to its proximity to the Bright Lands region of Ryloth, an area few ever visit, not many sentients have witnessed this natural phenomenon.
For millennia, the Twi'leks have used the Garden as a haven of meditation and tranquility. To them, it is a place to contemplate one's pace in the galaxy while watching the natural movements of the rocks in the air currents, and these reflections have influenced much of the Twi'lek's philosophical beliefs.
Many Jedi, often on recommendation from Twi'lek friends, have come to visit the site, finding the natural phenomenon an inspiration which aides them in their force meditations and also offers an opportunity for young Padawans to try moving the rocks with their, as yet, undeveloped force abilities.
When the site was first opened to aliens, its caretakers realized that the Garden's potential to earn a few credits would have to be balanced with the need to maintain the area's natural state. Towards this end, it is suggested to all visitors that they leave a monetary donation to help fund its preservation, if they have the means. While many have also left behind small rocks of various colours amongst the larger boulders, they are encouraged to simply watch and enjoy the natural splendour, while touching a deeper, more thoughtful place in their minds.
