This garden finished construction in 1342 by Buddhists as a memorial for their master. Since then, it has changed ownership, and has undergone rehabilitation and reconstruction several times. It has a number of towers and pavilions that have their own story and distinct style. Its most notable feature is the rockery, most of which resemble lions in various poses.
Entrance Fee: CNY 40 from April, May, and July to October, CNY 30 from January to March, June, November and December
