Beijing to Shanghai Sights

Blue Wave Pavilion (Cānglàng tíng)

Updated 05/28/2013

Fodor's Review

The oldest existing garden in Suzhou, the Blue Wave Pavilion dates back more than 900 years to the Song Dynasty. With a rambling, maze-like design, the grounds feel a little wild. The central pond is surrounded by a wooden walkway and reflects the upturned eaves of the surrounding buildings. More than 100 different latticework motifs in the windows provide visual variety as you saunter along the corridor that winds through the grounds. The Pure Fragrance Pavilion

showcases Qing Dynasty furniture at its most extreme; the entire suite is created from gnarled banyan root.
