The east part of East Garden is mainly the remains of the ancient city wall. It is green with hundreds of trees. To the west of the remains of the ancient city wall there is a river. The reflective image of the Hanbi Building and the Three Hole Bridge when seen together, remind the viewer of a beautiful Chinese painting. There is a pool to the east of the Three Hole Bridge called “Fish Viewing Area”. A pavilion is built on the pool. Visitors can see the numerous ornamental fishes in the pavilion.
