In addition to the Confucius Temple, this is the other must see if you're in Jianshui. Though it has a lot of rooms and courtyards, you can see it 1-2 hours. I particularly enjoyed looking at the series of rooms with folding wooden doors separated by courtyards with plants and flowers. It's peaceful and quiet.

You don't really need to see the whole thing, as it is really huge, and after a while, it's just another courtyard and more rooms! But you really do get the idea that this was an extremely wealthy family! Most of the furnishings and details are not much to look at, as they have clearly been added later to fill... More

Zhu's family garden give you a nice view on old Chinese family tradition. Most of the things look untouched and you feel the real historical background. On picture exhibition you can see few things for the Jianshui area and the life style in old time. It is definitely worth to walk around there if you're in Jianshui. On thing I... More

This is the most beautiful house in Jianshui. Although Jianshui is a small country of Kuming, the culture is more close to Han than the other places. The theatre house is nice. It was raining when we visited the house and it made the picture full of sadness.

The Private Garden of Zhu Family lies in Jianshui Street, Jianshui county, has a total area of 20,000 square meters and a floor space of 5,000 square meters. This grand complex is a typical local residence with distinctive features. The mansion and garden is well worth a visit with its beautiful Chinese architecture from the late Qing Dynasty ~1910.

I really enjoy seeing how people lived in the old times so this place I found really interesting. Plus the history of the family through the centuries also quite nice - you could only show the picture of the cut head somehow different so kids don't ask what is that - it can be somewhat hard to explain
