Beautiful garden! This was our favourite site in the Tongli water village. The garden is small but it felt very spacious because of the creative design. lots of tourists during the day but our accomodation hosts suggested going first thing or late in the day - watch for mosquitos! If you took a milk tea or cool beverage in you could sit in the gazebo area - climb up the rock path - and overlook the garden. Lovely place for contemplation and fun for kids with all the nooks and crannies.
Tongli used to be called Futu. In Tang Dynasty, because he thought that his famous son was too luxurious, he changed his name to Tongli, the copper of copper coins. In Song Dynasty, he still felt luxurious. So he overlapped the old name Futu and cut it off in the upper point, which became Tongli today. There is another legend that changed Futu into Tongli. It is said that long ago, famine continued in Fuyang area of Zhejiang Province. Many people leave their homes and come here to reclaim wasteland and cultivate land, and work hard, coupled with the smooth weather, so here has become a wealth of goods, people live and work in peace and contentment, which is called "rich soil". When Emperor Yangdi came to power in Sui Dynasty, he ignored the government because of his extravagance and leisure. It was not long before the Treasury was running short. There was a year of drought in the north and flooding in the south. In many places, the grain harvest was poor and the imperial grain could not be handed in. So the emperor ordered that the rich people in the south of the Yangtze River should pay three more buckets of grain per person and pay them within ten days. Those who violate the law will be punished severely. When the people of Futu heard the news, they were very anxious. They asked a Xiucai named Jin in the town at that time what to do. After thinking about it, Jin Xiucai told the villagers to split the word "Fu" into two, go up a little and split the fields into earth, which became the word "Tongli". In a twinkling of an eye, when the 10-day deadline arrived, the imperial dispatcher who urged grain arrived at Futu by boat. Jin Xiucai led his fellow countrymen to the shore to welcome him. Once the imperial dispatcher landed, he asked about the imperial grain. Jin Xiuci calmly answered - "This year's disaster, the harvest was greatly reduced, and it was difficult to capture it". Imperial officials do not believe it, angry way - "Hugh up nonsense, rich land is a rich land, how can there be no food. If not handed over, we must comply with the orders of heavy penalties "Jinxiu is not humble, not overbearing, explain with a grin - "adults'anger, please listen to the details below. This place was originally called Tongli, but it is not rich in soil. Please be aware of it. After hearing this, he was puzzled. He made a tour along the street, southeast and northwest. All he saw were traces of Tongli, but there were no traces of Futu, so he had to do so. Tongli, Tongli, Tongxiangli, looked at and cried plain and friendly, so they continue to use today.
Tuisiyuan is located in Tongli Town, Wujiang District, Suzhou City, Jiangsu Province. Its architecture is unique and full of poetry and painting. Make it a pearl in the cultural heritage of the Han nationality. Tusi Garden was built from the eleventh to thirteen years of Guangxu in Qing Dynasty (1885-1887 AD). Lansheng, director of the park, is named Nanyun. Guangxu Decade (1884 AD), Cabinet Bachelor Zhou Derun impeached Ren Lansheng to take advantage of Lijin and run private fertilizer. In the first month of Guangxu Eleventh Year (1885 AD), when he was dismissed from office, he was disciplined because of the fact that all his merits were unreal, and the Ministry was discussing the reform of his position. Ren Lansheng returned home from his post and spent 120,000 yuan to build a homestead. His brother Ren Aisheng's crying brother's poems have the phrase "the title was taken to make up for the retreat period, and the grass and trees in Pingquan looked at together". It can be seen that the name of the garden is taken as "Zuozhuan" "the idea of thinking faithfully, retreat to make up for the mistakes". Yuen Long, the designer of Tusi Garden, skillfully utilized less than ten mu of area, designed such buildings as Chunwangyue Bookstore, Qinfang, Tusi Cao Tang, Naohong Yizhao, Mianyun Pavilion, which embodied the diligence and wisdom of Han intellectuals and skilled craftsmen, and embodied the philosophy of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism, religious thought, landscape poetry, painting and other traditional arts of the Han nationality.
The retreat garden is worthy of being a model of Oriental gardening art, a priceless artistic treasure of the Han nationality, and a world historical and cultural heritage. Tui Si Yuan was built in Guangxu Period of Qing Dynasty. The private garden built by Ren Lansheng of Bingbei Road in Anhui Province after his return to his hometown has a total of 120,000 flowers. Unique style, horizontal structure, from west to east, pavilions, terraces, pavilions, galleries, fangs, bridges, pavilions, halls, houses, Xuan, all available, ancient camphor tree tall and strong, lush vegetation, Lake rockery rockery scenery. As well as the essence of classical gardens, sparrows are small and have all five internal organs. The pool is situated in the garden. The Water Champs stands in the water, beautiful and beautiful. It's worth a visit.
When you go to Tongli Tuishi Garden, you must go there. It is also open at night. Besides, small people at night are more suitable for delicate taste. This house is not elegant in appearance, elegant in inner temperament and different from others. Therefore, it is listed as one of the world cultural heritages. The internal structure of Tusi Garden is also different from other gardens in the south of the Yangtze River, reflecting the master's ingenuity. The name of the garden comes from "and then loyalty, but it's worth remembering "Famous Sentences'.
Lan Sheng, director of the Garden of Thoughts. At first, I thought there was a post of garden director at that time. Later, I found out that Ren Lansheng, 42 years old in Guangxu 5 years (1879), was officially serving as the military preparatory road of Fengyang Ying (state) and Liu (an) Sizhou (state). At this time, Ren Lansheng was in full swing. He was impeached just as he was passionately demonstrating his talents in office. In Guangxu 10 years, Ren Lansheng was 47 years old when he was dismissed, which is the most mature age for an administrative cadre. He returned to his hometown, Tongli, and built a famous retreat garden at home and abroad. In 1888, Ren Lansheng, who had spent more than two quiet days in Tusi Garden, broke the Yellow River dike in Guangxu 14 years. Under the protection of Shandong Governor Zhang Fan and Zeng Guofan, he rushed to the first line of flood control in Anhui Province. Ren Lansheng "Shinto Monument" recorded that "he accidentally fell off his horse, "gangrene tail, few unexpected deaths" died of illness in Yingzhou Ren, aged 51.
Tongli Ancient Town must go to scenic spots, none of them. It feels like a mini version of Humble Administration Garden. But compared with Humble Administration Garden, Humble Administration Garden is different in style. Humble Administration Garden is more like a convergence of Suzhou Garden, but Humble Administration Garden is more like a place of self-cultivation, quiet and quiet, which may have a great relationship with the old age of its owners. I like it very much. The benevolent see the wise see the wise.
When I went to Tongli on the last weekend of May, it rained a lot in the south of the Yangtze River. Hui-style architecture, built in Guangxu years, is not small in size, and the garden is very popular. Especially when viewing the rockery pond at 45 degrees in the scenic building, it has a comfortable feeling of putting everything down. Inside there is a rockery nearby, but the leader took photos of the place ah. Tickets for scenic spots are included in the package tickets for Tongli. There are many people in Tongli. Even on rainy days (in fact, I feel like visiting ancient towns on rainy days, and have a feeling of it), I can listen to the tour guides with groups.
Tongli Ancient Town Tourist Area's first sign scenic spot is a small private garden with a small area, but the pavilions and galleries, rockery scenery, ancient bamboo trees, halls and tea breaks are all available in the gardens of the south of the Yangtze River. And it won't be as well-known as the Humble Administration Garden, where you can also appreciate the pleasant poems and paintings of private gardens.
Tuisiyuan is one of the best gardens in the same area, and it also has very moving inspirational stories. However, the scenic spot does not sell tickets alone. It costs 100 yuan for a pass and can visit nine scenic spots. I think it seems that the ancient town is greedy and inconvenient. Besides, it seems that such a good garden is not carefully managed, especially in some corners, which is really a hindrance.
