The Banyan Gardens
   vicon.gif (1499 bytes)

    Found in Jinhu township, and previously known as Sihong, the Banyan Gardens are the former residence of the Ming classical scholar Hong Shou.

   When visitors first arrive in Jinhu, they are always moved by the calm atmosphere created by the shady trees, and the brief respite from the outside world provided by the Banyan Gardens. The contrast is even more marked as one unexpectedly comes across this serene place amongst the hub-bub of the town in which it is set.
