Residence of the Zhu family in Jianshui
Zhu Family Garden, which was built in the combination of residence and ancestral shrine with ancient QING dynasty architectures, is now operating for both visiting and accommodation.
The arrangement of Zhu Family Garden shows the elegance of the whole architectural complex. With the upturned eaves, the vivid paintings and exquisite carvings on the roof beams, also the structure of the courtyard, they all help reflecting how the Zhu Family’s life was in the past.

There are 28 guest rooms opened for accommodation, most of them are named base on the plants like “Plum Blossom”, “Orchid”, “Bamboo” and “chrysanthemum” etc. Furniture in the chambers are mainly made with wood that represent the designs in Qing dynasty style.
