    The Lingering Garden is one of the most famous Chinese classical gardens. Located in Suzhou old town, the Lingering Garden is famous for its exquisitely arranged buildings and rockery. The Lingering Garden, the Suzhou Humble Administrator’s Garden, the Summer Palace in Beijing and the Mountain Resort in Chengde are the four most famous gardens in China. The Lingering Garden is centered around a pond. On the north shore of the pond there is a rockery and a pavilion. The whole garden is divided into four parts so that people can experience four different types of scenery (landscape, pastoral, forest and garden) in one garden. The center part is known for its water features and is the essence of the whole Lingering Garden. The east part is filled with corridors and buildings. There are three stone peaks inside the courtyard. The north part is the pastoral part and features a bonsai garden. The west part is the highest point of the whole Lingering Garden and is famous for its rockery. The Hanbishan Room and the Minse Building to the south of the pool are the main viewing buildings of the Lingering Garden. The Lingering Garden has the greatest number of building structures of all the gardens in Suzhou. The structures consist of halls, corridors, painted walls, and archways together with rockery, pools, flowers and trees combine into dozens of different miniature gardens. The utilization of space is evidence of the superb artistry of those who built the garden.
