About Swallow Garden

Swallow Garden is located beside the Lushan Jinjiang Hotel in Changshu City, Suzhou. It was constructed in the Qianlong Emperor period of the Qing Dynasty approximately 300 years ago. At that time, the Fujian Taipeng observer and part-time political scholar Jiang Yuanshu encountered difficulties when crossing the sea. After his safe return to Changshu, he was struck by the idea of a swallow safely returning to its home, and thus named it the Swallow Garden. Swallow Garden is a classic garden with relatively intact preservation of its original form. There are lotus ponds in the eastern part along with the 72 Stone Monkeys rock face. The Wuzhi Pavilion is where the former owners of the garden would welcome friends and relatives to their home. In front of the Wuzhi Pavilion is the Yangu rock face, which was created by the famous designer Ge Yuliang and is much admired by gardeners.
