History

   The garden was built in the late Qing Dynasty in late 19th century, and is the most recently built Suzhou gardens.  The garden was originally a private garden built by Go Wenbin, an official of the early years of the Guangxu Reign of the late Qing Dynasty. It has been described as one of the most representative Suzhou gardens, comprising of a garden, a lotus pond, residences, artificial villages and ancestral halls.
