Eling Park, Chongqing China
Eling Park
The Eling Park lies on the Eling Mountain of western side of Chongqing City and is near The Fotu Guan.

The Jialing River and the Yangtze River are flowing at the foot of it from south and north. The topography of the Eling Mountain is very high and steep standing toweringly at the gate of the mountain city - Chongqing as if it was guiding for the mountain city.

The Eling Park was built in late Qing Dynasty (1644 ~ 1911A.D.). Originally it was a private garden and called "Yiyuan". Later, a rich businessman purchased the place and converts in to a villa and named it "Liyuan".

During Emperor Guangxu of Ch'ing Dynasty, a friend of the garden's owner - a calligrapher named Zhaoxi felt the topography of this mountain like a goose's head, so he wrote down "Eling Mountain" to the owner. The owner was very happy and immediately he carved and set up a stone tablet. This is the origin of the name of the Eling Park.

The Eling Park displays the layout of Suzhou gardens. There are pavilions, platforms, high buildings, winding paths and corridors, lotus ponds, arc bridges and so on in the whole garden.

Additionally, there are potted landscape gardens and Nanyuan each with characteristic. The man-made landscapes on the mountain look quite elegant.
