Master of Nets Garden
The Master of the Nets Garden is among the finest gardens in Suzhou and recognized with other classical Suzhou gardens as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The garden demonstrates Chinese gardening skills blending art, nature and architecture to create unique masterpieces. The Master of the Nets is regarded among garden connoisseurs for having mastered the techniques of contrast, sequence, relative dimension and depth. The two dominant elements of the composition are the Barrier of Cloud grotto, a cypress tree dating from the Ming Dynasty and a pine tree several centuries old. The areas to the south of the Rosy Cloud Pool were used for social activities and the areas to the north were used for intellectual activities.
