Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden

Named after the famous revolutionary leader, this classical Chinese garden was made in careful accord with the design principles of Ming dynasty (AD 1368-1644) scholar's garden, typical of the gardens of Suzhou. Scholar gardens drew inspiration from the classics, from earlier precedents and from the site iteslf. The owner would often write a poem to launch the garden's design. The Sun Yat garden's designers drew inspiration from the Gentle Wave Garden and the Garden of the Master of the Fishing Nets, both in Suzhou . It comprises a Classical Garden and a Main Garden, composed round a lake. Fifty-two artisans came from China to work on the project. The craftsmanship is of a very high standard.
