What travelers say:

At that time, I went by myself. The stay in the park is formed by historical precipitation. If I am visiting myself, it is too simple. I suggest you take a tour with a group. Or find a guide to take it. Because the garden belongs to feel the history and to understand the history stories, so it is better to be explained. The scenery is very nice, but when I went there was a lot of people, I liked it more clean, so go according to my own situation! The Taihu Stone is very shocking, love! There was a performance at the time, very good, very like it!

Additional Information

Introduction

The Lingering Garden, along with the Humble Administrator’s Garden in Suzhou, the Summer Palace in Beijing, and the Chengde Imperial Summer Resort in Hebei, are collectively known as China's Four Great Gardens. The Lingering Garden is known for the graceful beauty of its Chinese pavilions, rock collections, winding paths, the greenery which fills the park, and its jade-colored pond. Here, one can experience the calm of visiting an area in between that of a landscape garden and a natural landscape. The Lingering Garden was built in the Ming dynasty, in the 21st year of Emperor Wanli's reign (1593 CE) by Xu Taishi, a bureaucrat of the Ming court, as the landscape garden of his private residence. The garden was called the "East Garden" at the time. In the Qing dynasty, in the early years of Emperor Guangxu's reign, the garden was purchased by a bureaucrat by the name of Sheng Kang, who renamed it the "Lingering Garden". The garden is divided into four themed sections. Within a single garden, one can have a taste of four distinct scenes, namely natural landscapes, countrysides, mountain forests, and flower gardens.
