Garden of the Master of Nets

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Garden of the Master of Nets is one of the popular tourist attractions in China. It is the smallest garden in Suzhou and is spread over a land area of only 5000 square meters. The small space is its supreme charm as it includes all the elements of a classic Chinese garden within close borders. From a tranquil pond, outdoor pavilion, decorated rooms, a stone mountain, Suzhou's smallest stone bridge and serene courtyards, the use of space is superb.
Garden of the Master of Nets was initially established in 1140, but was abandoned and was not re-established to its current style until 1770 when it was distorted into the residence of a former official. It was first designed during the Song Dynasty as part of a residence that was used until the Taiping Rebellion in the 1860's. However, it was later restored and became the residence of a government official from whom the garden got its name.
The garden is still scrupulously cared for with luminous latticed wood, white washed walkways with decorative windows and carefully trimmed trees. During the evenings, visitors can also watch Chinese folk performances in this charming garden.
Although the garden does not match its former glory, Garden of the Master of Nets is a popular travel destination for visitors and globe trotters from all over the world who appreciate its beautiful landscapes, rich culture, delicious local cuisine, hospitality and safety.
