Yuyuan Garden Maps, Shanghai
Yuyuan Garden is located in the center of the Old Shanghai City with a few blocks south of the Bund, considered as one of the most lavish and finest Chinese gardens in the region. With a history of more than 400 years, the garden covers a significant space and includes a few halls and other buildings of interest. Its cultural relics include: century-old furniture, calligraphy and paintings of famous artists, clay sculptures and brick carvings, some inscriptions and couplets.
Exquisite Jade Rock is one of the highlights of the garden, a 5-ton, porous, beautifully-shaped, grotesque rock, which is said to have been carried from Taihu (Tai Lake) in Wuxi, Jiangsu province. The rock is characterized by its wrinkled appearance, slender shape, translucent nature and numerous holes eroded by water. An interesting legend goes that the rock was found some 1000 years ago, and it was originally one of Song Emperor Huizong's private collections before it found its way into Yu Garden.
