    Brave the Labyrinth, Suzhou rockery, rockery maze | 以“假山王国”著称于世
    Lion’s Grove Garden is particularly famous for its rockeries – man-made formations made from rocks brought out of from Taihu Lake by the designers of the garden. The rockeries form a labyrinth of tunnels and overpasses leading to a teahouse and stone boat. 狮子林为苏州四大名园之一,至今已有650多年的历史。位于苏州市市城东北园林路。因园内“林有竹万,竹下多怪石,状如狻猊(狮子)者”,又因天如禅师维则得法于浙江天目山狮子岩普应国师中峰,为纪念佛徒衣钵、师承关系,取佛经中狮子座之意,故名“狮子林”。
