Yuyuan Garden ("Yu Garden"), located in the center of the Old City in Shanghai, China, is considered one of the most finest Chinese gardens in the region.
One of the true treasures of Yuyuan Garden is the Exquisite Jade Rock. The rock is 3.3 meters (~ 10.8 feet) in height and has 72 holes. What is interesting about this white jade rock is that if you burn a joss stick just below the rock, the smoke will magically float out from all of the holes. Similarly, when you pour water into the rock from top, the water will flow out from each hole creating a spectacular sight to see.
