Jichang Garden

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.
The Jichang Garden is located in the Xihui Garden on Huishan Street at the east foot of Huishan Mountain in Wuxi City, Jiangsu Province. Jichang Garden, also called as Qin Garden, was built in the classic southern Chinese style. This garden is situated in the eastern foothills of Huishan Mountain. Constructed between 1506 and 1521, this garden only occupies one hectare of land but seems larger and is well incorporated into the nearby scenery due to the creativity of its designer.
During the 100 years between the 1684 during the reign of Emperor Kangxi and 1784 during the reign of Emperor Qianlong, the emperors made 12 inspection tours to the region south of the lower reaches of the Yangtze River. They paid a visit to the garden every time with no exception, leaving countless articles, poems, tablets and couplets there. The garden was divided into the east and the west. In the east part the central scenery includes the water corridor in the west, rockeries and forests. The Jinhui Ripple, lying in the east, is a thin pond containing many ripples. A square pavilion was built in the pond with a roof of nine ridges and flying eaves.

The Jichang Garden is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in China. It is worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place will leave a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justify the proud cultural tradition of China.
