Beijing’s Xuanwu Garden (宣武艺园) is located on Huaibaishu (槐柏树) Street. The garden’s area takes up about 8.37 acres. Previously known as Shanguo (善果) Temple, it was built during the Ming Dynasty and destroyed by an earthquake during the 1930s. In 1938, it was rebuilt by the local government and renamed the Xuanwu Garden.

Xuanwu Garden is a combination of both classic architectural design and modern landscape design techniques. It is scenic for its elegant style and offers a quiet escape that submerges itself in a peaceful environment. Xuanwu garden attracts hundreds of tourists every year.

Features: In the garden, there is a breathtaking display of decorative rocks that lines the garden, a lovely pool and waterfalls that protrude from the rear. The garden is separated into two parts: the West part and the East one. On the West side of the Garden, the water display sits amid the scenic waterfalls and is itself the central theme. As autumn approaches, senior citizens like to go there to do Tai Chi near the pool. In the Eastern part of the garden, there is a special type of wood-grain called “Shanlin” in Chinese, which means is “eye-catching” scenery. Pavilions are everywhere, in red and gray and are both high and low.
