The garden was first established in 1559 as a private garden created by Pan Yunduan, who spent almost 20 years building a garden to please his father Pan En, a high-ranking official in the Ming Dynasty, during his father's old age. Over the years, the gardens fell into disrepair until about 1760 when bought by merchants, before suffering extensive damage in the 19th century. In 1842, during the Opium Wars, the British army occupied the Town God Temple for five days. During the Taiping Rebellion the gardens were occupied by imperial troops, and damaged again by the Japanese in 1942. They were repaired by the Shanghai government from 1956-1961, opened to the public in 1961, and declared a national monument in 1982.Chinese style Lamp.
There were many characteristic small gates as many as separated areas.
When I touched, It was cold but it made me calm.
I can't forget the feelings on my fingers.
Only I and tree in this room. I thought even I could talk to leaves.
Yuyuan was quite a big garden than I expected.
It was separated with many different areas delicately. And each area made me feel cosy.
In this garden, you can feel fresh energy as much as old chinese tradition spirit.
