Yuyuan Garden is a beautiful place situated in the very center of Shanghai. It was created by the governor of Sichuan in the second half of the 16th century, however, since then the garden was destroyed many times. At the turn of the 1950s and 1960s the garden was restored and opened to the public. It is the 2-hectare park with ponds with quaint bridges, characteristic pavilions, ornamental trees, shrubs and rocks - the most famous one is the 5-ton porous rock of an unusual shape. The different parts of the garden are separated by the white wall. The park is beautifully illuminated and its colorful illumination attracts the eye from afar after dark.
