Yan Family Garden

Historic Building in Mudu

This beautiful complex in the northwest corner of the village is the highlight of the town, dating to the Ming dynasty. It was once the home of a former magistrate. The garden, with its rockeries and a meandering lake, is divided into five sections by walls, each section designed to invoke a season. Legend has it that Emperor Qianlong himself planted the stately magnolia tree when he stayed for a night. If you visit just one sight in Mudu, come here.
