For ordinary people who don't know how to appreciate Chinese painting, the first reaction to entering Wanzhu Garden is, wow, a wonderful house. The house is not big, there are 4-5 sets of courtyards linked together, scattered and interlocking, and there are water-flowing outburst springs in the house.
Last year, when I visited Jinan, I visited Baotuquan many times. I found Li Kuchan Memorial Hall in Wanzhuyuan. Master Li is from Jinan. When I visited this memorial hall again this year, I felt that it had been renovated. There were many exhibits on display. I could see it for half an hour. Don't miss it if you like Chinese painting.
In the quadrangle of Wanzhu Garden in Potuquan Park, there is an exhibition of calligraphy and painting by Master Li Kuchan. It's worth seeing.
It is an ancient courtyard with the style of Jiangnan courtyard and Beijing Wangfu courtyard and Jinan quadrangle courtyard.
I like the four big pomegranate trees in the pomegranate yard very much.
The Wanzhu Garden in Baotuquan Park is a little remote and has a good content.
Not a big memorial, you can come if you are interested in him.
Very delicate small courtyard, worth visiting.
