Humble Administrator's GardenThe Humble Administrator's Garden (Zhouzheng Yuan) is one fof the four famous gardens in China, and the other three refers to the Summer Palace in Beijing, and Summer Resort in Chengde, and the Lingering Garden in Suzhou. As the largest classical garden in Suzhou, the Humble Administrator's Garden is located in downtown Suzhou. The garden's scenery is focused on a central pond with various buildings of pavilions, terraces, chambers, and towers located by the water or on hillocks in a natural, unsophisticated, and appropriate composition. The garden is most representative of Chinese classical gardens in the Ming Dynasty. It was laid out in 1513 by the censor, Wang Xiancheng, after his retirement from political life. He named the garden after an essay by Pan Yue of Jing Era, On Idle Living, Building house and planting trees, watering garden and growing vegetables are the affairs (Zheng) of humble (Zhuo) people. After his death, his son gambled away the garden.

Today's garden is only very loosely related to its earliest version, but closely resembles its late Qing appearance, with numerous pavilions and bridges set among a maze of connected pools and islands. It consists of three major parts set about a large lake the central part (Zhuozheng Yuan), the eastern part (once called Guitianyuanju, Dwelling Upon Return to the Countryside), and a western part (the Supplementary Garden). The house lies in the south of the garden. In total, the garden contains 48 different buildings with 101 tablets, 40 stelae, 21 precious old trees, and over 700 Suzhou-style bonsai.
