It boasts its fine gardening, luxurious and spacious hall, and collection of stones from Taihu Lake by which people can be freshened up without going out the city; design of courtyards is full of changes and surprise. Its architectural spatial processing skills are quite impressive. Gardeners make use of various artistic techniques, constituting a rhythmic garden space system. It is a world-famous example of architectural space artistic processing. Now the garden is divided into four parts: East, Central, West, and North.
