“Calm, quiet, reflective spot”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

This site is quite a surprise as it's in a busy location facing the river. As you enter, the air is cooled, the noise abates, and a reflective environment unfolds. Mi Fu, calligrapher and artist, is the focus with his words etched in stone on various monuments. A garden, moat, bridges, interesting landscape, small pagoda rooms, and a replica of his home can be seen. The architecture, statues, and gardens are all artistic in their placement and style. A wonderful gift shop with interesting items is a must. Prices are excellent! Guides (only in Chinese) provide services. You gain a sense of this interesting individual and life at a time of riches and opulence in China.
