Shanghai Yu Gardens 8

Shanghai Municipality Scenes

8. Shanghai Yu Gardens

The garden is divided into three parts separated by dragon-spined walls, built of whitewashed masonry and their undulating top covered with tiles simulating the scales of a dragon. We spent several hours enjoying this peaceful garden and enjoyed it very much in 1984. The bridge with its nine bends is supposed to confuse evil spirits who seemingly have to travel in straight lines.
