Established in Qing Dynasty, Quyuan Garden was the residence of Yu Yue, a great scholar at the end of the Qing Dynasty.
Yu helped design the garden. One of the specialized pavilions in the garden is called “Lezhi Pavilion,” which presents his optimistic and grateful philosophy on life. There is now many calligraphy works by Yu’s disciples, including those by Wu Changshuo and Zhang Taiyan, who are well known to Chinese.
Quyuan Garden was bequeathed to the government by Yu Pingbo, the great-grandson of Yu Yue.
