What people are saying:

In the garden, the stone forest, the pavilion and pavilion are intricately arranged, and the style of Humble Administrator's Garden, Suzhou gardens of six meanings reflected incisively. Just suggest not to leave so early, Suzhou many gardens are closed at 4 pm, it is too early for out-of-town tourists, especially in the summer, the day is very long, there is no need to clear the garden so early, for tourists is a bad feeling.

Additional Information


Lion Forest Garden, Humble Administrator's Garden, Lingering Garden, and Canglang Pavilion are collectively known as the “Four Famous Suzhou Gardens”. The Lion Forest was built in the Yuan Dynasty and was originally a back garden of Zen temples. It was later purchased as a private residence. This garden was treasured by Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty, who always stayed here during his visits to Southern China. Although the Lion Grove Garden is small, the artificial mountains in the park are very well-known. The strange rocks resemble dancing lions. The connection between the artificial mountains is not dissimilar to a maze. You can play hide-and-seek in the stone maze or count the number of observable stone lions.
