The Yu Gardens, also known as the Yu Yuan Garden, is likely the most celebrated classical Chinese garden in Shanghai. Yu Yuan Garden was first built in 1559 and it took workers almost 20 years to complete.
Yu Gardens' landscape seems to wind on forever - the gardens are purposefully designed to distort space and distance. Emblematic of the gardening style of the Ming and Qing dynasties, the Yu Garden is a maze of pavilions, grottoes, lotus ponds, and rickety bridges crossing lazy streams.
