Photographer's Note

At side of the bazar I showed you before is a big garden (Yu Garden). It was built in 1559, during Ming Dynasty, by a rich man who wanted to give some joy to his father at the end of his life. At the end the garden ruined the fortune of the family because it was very expensive to keep it, it was sold and destroyed many times, it was used by British army during the Opium War, destroyed during Taiping Rebellion and during the Japanese invasion in 1942.
Here we can see one of the walls that divided sectors of the garden.

Ao lado do bazar que mostrei antes,está o grandioso Jardim Yu, criado em 1559, durante a dinastia Ming por um rico personagem. Esse homem queria tornar mais alegre os últimos anos de vida de seu pai e mandou fazer o jardim, no fim a manutenção do jardim arruinou a fortuna da família, que o vendeu. O jardim foi ocupado pelos britânicos durante a Guerra do Ópio, foi destruído pelos rebeldes Taiping e destruído pelos japoneses em 1942.
Vemos aqui um dos muros que separam os setores do jardim.
