Master of the Nets Garden
Introduction to Master of the Nets Garden (网师园)
The Master of Nets Garden, or Wang Shi Yuan, was first constructed during the Song Dynasty (960-1279) but was later abandoned. It was "rediscovered" in the 18th century by a retired official who restored the gardens. Like many Confucian scholar-officials, he preferred the peace of nature to the wrangling of Court life. He is said to have remarked that he would rather be a fisherman than a bureaucrat. This is the origin of the garden's name. The garden remains of Suzhou's most well known gardens and attractions.
