Osmanthus Lake Park

Not far from Precious Light Temple, this park used to be the residence of a Ming Dynasty scholar by the name of Yang Sheng’an (1488-1559). The lake here is surrounded by osmanthus trees with a huge expense of lotuses on the water. The perfume of the lotus blossoms in summer is followed by the sweet smell of the osmanthus flowers in autumn. With palaces, pavilions, and terraces scattered among green trees by the lakeside, the park is a charming place to visit.
