Shen Yuan (Shen Garden), Shaoxing

#2 of 7 in Parks in Shaoxing
Garden Nature / Park
A typical and evocative Chinese garden, the 800-year-old Shen Yuan (Shen Garden) pairs picturesque scenes with a historical and tragic love story. Poet Lu You and Tang Wan fell deeply in love and married young, but the union did not have Lu's mother's blessing, and after three years she forced him to divorce Tang. Although Tang remarried, their love never died and Lu wrote a poem for Tang when they met once again in the garden. Upon reading Lu's poem, she fell ill and subsequently died, though not before writing a poem for Lu in response. The spacious garden affords peaceful strolls amongst rich plant life, a pond filled with lotus, and a traditional timber pavilion.

  • Red hands. Huang Teng wine. Spring in the city wall, willow. Dongfeng and evil. Enjoying the lack of affection. A melancholy, a few years lisuo. Wrong wrong wrong. Spring as before. One thin. Tears moisten Red Shark scent. Peach drop. Free Chi Ge. Mountain Union, Brocade book harder to hold. Mo Momo.
