    Tuisi Garden

    So named to suggest a garden of "retiring to introspect the faults", was contructed during the reign of Guang Xu of the Qing Dynasty (1885 - 1887) as a private landscaped garden of Ren Lansheng, a then official of rectifying armed force. Owing to its typical terrain, Tuisi Yuan (Tuisi Garden) is laid out horizontally instead of vertically. From west to east, the left section contains houses, the middle pavillions, and the right gardens. Small as Tuisi Garden is, it is typical of a landscaped garden for all the architecture of Chinese garden such as pavillions, platforms, towers, halls, bridges, houses, and corridors can be found there since all the contructions are built on or near water. The garden is also reknowned as Tieshuiyuan (Garden Close To Water). In 1982 Tuisi Garden became the historical site under the provincial protection of Jiangsu, and in 2000 was listed as the World Cultural Heritage.

    Near the center of Tongli, you can get dressed up as Emperor or Empress of China, or a virginal bride and have your picture taken.
