|Yangtze River (usually referred to as Jiangnan). Built in 1559, the 38th year of Jiajing Reign of Ming Dynasty, Yuyuan Garden is originally designed for its owner—Pan Yunduan’s aging father to enjoy his old age. The name of Yuyuan Garden is associated with the homophonic sound of “yu (satisfying) the aging parents”. Situated at the south of the garden gate, Nine-Zigzag Bridge is characterized by its winding paths and extraordinary elegance, along with a length of 18 meters and a width of 2 meters. Nine-Zigzag Bridge and Mid-Lake Pavilion are both recognized as the symbols of Shanghai. Renowned as the essence of Yuyuan Garden, Grand Rockery is towering in the west of the garden. With an estimated height of 14 meters, Grand Rockery is also known as a typical representation of yellowstone rockery within Jiangnan garden landscapes. Grand Rockery is composed of range upon range of mountains, thus demonstrating a magnificent momentum in the overall scale. When you climb the mountains and look around, you will feel like being all out in high mountains and lofty hills. |
