The Classical Gardens of Shanghai

Enjoying a history of more than 900 years, Songjiang is quite rightfully proud of the esteem that all things ancient can lay claim to in China. In keeping with this mindset, the classical garden situated in Songjiang, Zuibaichi, claims to be the oldest of Shanghai's gardens, having first been founded by Zhu Zhichun in the ninth century during the Song Dyansty and called Guyang Garden. Its history since then, however, has not been a continuous one, the original grounds having passed hands, fallen into disrepair, and been rebuilt numerous times.
