Canglangting Pavilion (Canglangting Garden) is one of the four most famous gardens in Suzhou and has been listed as a 4-AAAA national tourist attraction and a site on the World Heritage list.
The garden was initially erected in 1044 in the Song Dynasty as a private residence and was enlarged as a garden in later years and named as the Pavilion of the Azure Waves. This garden is in the southern part of city and is one of the oldest in China history. The layout is more natural and less architectural. The basic elements of water and rocks and hills are present, forming the backbone of the garden.
