    Description
    The Garden of Herbs is located in Wenya Nong inside the Changmen Gate in the northwest corner of Suzhou old town. The garden is inconspicuously hidden deep in the alley. It covers an area of merely 5 acres and is centered on a pond which takes up 20% of the area of the entire garden. There are inlets connecting the pond in the southeast and southwest corners. The two stone bridges above the two inlets makes the water seem more open and flowing. Most of the buildings are to the north of the pond. The main hall of the garden is called Boya Hall. South of the hall there are a courtyard and water pavilions connecting the rooms in the wings. South of the pond there is some rockery and trees. The pond, the stone path and the rockery are done in the common style of gardens built in the Ming Dynasty and the Qing Dynasty. West of the pond there is another small courtyard, inside which there is an even smaller pond that flows into the big pond. This is the only garden with two ponds in Suzhou. In addition to the small pond, there are some flowers and trees inside the small courtyard. It is the quietest place inside the whole garden.

    景点介绍
    艺圃位于苏州古城西北阊门吴趋坊的文衙弄,位于小街深巷之中,环境幽静,园景开朗,风格质朴,全园有地仅为五亩,以约占五分之一的池水为中心。水面集中,其东南及西南两角,各有水湾伸出,并于水口之上各架形制不同的石板桥一座,故而水面显得开阔流动,绝无拥塞局促之感。池水之北多建筑,博雅堂为园中主要厅堂,其南端有小院,设湖石花台,院南临池处,建有水榭五间,两侧厢房则与池水东、西两面的厢房相连。池水之南为假山,以土堆成,临处之处,则以湖石叠成绝壁、危径,既多变化又较自然。于池北远望此处,山石嶙刚,树木葱郁,给人以奇秀之美、山林之趣,成为园中的主要对景。此种以池水、石径、绝壁相结合的手法,为明清苏州一代造园家所常用,取法自然而又力求超越自然。池水之东有乳鱼亭,系明代遗物,外有小径与各处相通。池水之西,有芹庐小院,以圆洞门与其它景区相隔而又相连。步入院门,即可见院中有小池,似与大池相通。这在苏州园林中还属于孤例。院中散置湖石花木,为园内最为僻静之处。
