Yu Garden

Feel peace and comfort at Yu Garden in the heart of bustling Shanghai

Yu Garden is a pleasant enough, well-contained classical Chinese garden. It is the most complete classical garden in urban Shanghai and therefore a must-see for every tourist. Built between 1559 and 1577 by local official Pan Yunduan as the private estate for his father, Yu Yuan (meaning “Garden of Peace and Comfort”) is a maze of Ming Dynasty pavilions, elaborate rockeries, arched bridges, and goldfish ponds, all encircled by an undulating dragon wall.
