The garden is not large, but it has exquisite and delicate arrangements. Walking in the tranquil garden, you will be soon attracted by its artificial landscape. The garden is especially prestigious with its rockworks and bamboos.

Geyuan Garden Features

History and Culture
Geyuan Garden was built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and was later rebuilt as a private garden in 1818 during the Qing Dynasty. Huang Zhiyun, a rich salt merchant and the owner of the garden, thought highly of the upright character of the bamboo. What’s more, the bamboo leaves look like the Chinese character 'ge', so the name of 'Geyuan' was given. Originally, there were more than o­ne hundred kinds of bamboo in the garden, but today o­nly a sprinkling of bamboo can be seen.
 
Geyuan Garden, o­ne of the four best gardens in China and the magnum opus of private gardens in Qing Dynasty, is well known as the o­nly extant of gardening art for its Four-season Rockeries. The architect of Geyuan Garden had distinguished acuity of the figures and colors of rocks. In Geyuan Garden, different prospects in four seasons are constructed with rocks. Therefore, the rockeries are so rich, colorful and winning visitors frequently tend to feel themselves facing true mountains.
