Built in Qing Dynasty, Huanxiu Shangzhuang Garden is famous mainly for its art of rockery.
The way in which the rocks were piled up is the best among the lakeside rocks and rockeries in Suzhou gardens and is praised as "one of the three excellences in Suzhou." Most of the areas of the garden is covered with water and dotted with rockeries. Here you can see that water winds like silky belt beside the towering trees over hills and the paths zigzags through the hillside with green leaves overlooking ponds.
Huanxiu Shanzhuang Garden is on the list of Cultural Relics under State Protection, and is also listed as the World Natural Heritage.
