Attraction Description
Garden of the Master of Nets is one of the many gardens located in Suzhou. The garden was built in the Song Dynasty and went through several renovations after the Taiping Rebellion that occurred in the 1860s. The garden is very beautiful and focuses around the centerpiece pond that is filled with fish. There is also an art gallery inside filled with local Suzhou works of art that can be purchased if so desired.
Lingering Garden is very unique in that a good portion of the garden is filled with buildings of various kinds of architecture and the gardens use the spaces between these buildings to fill up the area with beauty. Lingering Garden is focused on a central pond with pavilions, terraces, chambers, and towers located nearby. The garden was listed as a cultural relic of national importance in 1961 by the Chinese government.
