The Garden Guide

Gong Wang Fu (Residence of Prince Gong)

In the middle of the 19th century Gong Wang Fu Garden belonged to Prince Gong, the brother of Emperor Xian Feng and the brother-in-law to the Empress Dowager Cixi. The Prince was a talented artist particularly in the arts of gardening and poetry thus this garden is a poetic experience. Visitors can follow winding paths through the garden to view the pagodas and buildings from a variety of angles. Little streams, stone hills, and corridors rising along a mound create a tranquil atmosphere. Visitors may also go angling beside the central pool.
