Built in 1513 of the Ming Dynasty, Zhuozhengyuan, or the Humble Administrators Garden, is the largest in the city. It is under the state-level protection and regarded as one of the four major gardens in China along with the Summer Palace in Beijing, the Mountain Summer Resort in Chengde, and the Garden to Linger In in Suzhou.
