Yuyuan Garden

yuyuan gardenYuyuan Garden is a 400-year-old classical Chinese garden in the Old Town of Shanghai, not far from the Bund. Pan Yunduan spent twenty years and all his savings building it to please his parents in their old age.

Over the centuries the garden fell into disarray. Parts of it became residential, schools and markets. In 1956 the Shanghai government restored it and it was reopened to the public in 1961. There are over 40 buildings, ancient trees, ponds, bridges and sculptures. As one walks through the garden, the view changes with every step.

In the middle of the garden, the Huijing Tower area has ponds, bridges, viewing pagodas, rock formations and large trees. It is a peaceful area to relax and look at the different angles the garden's designers have created.

From here you can look at Huijing Tower, look at Jiyu Corridor, look at the Toasting Pavilion, go to the Double Corridor or go to the Yule Pavilion.
