Jurong Gardens

The Jurong Gardens is the collective name for the Chinese and Japanese Gardens situated at Jurong in Singapore. The Chinese Garden was built in 1975 by the JTC Corporation and designed by Prof. Yuen-chen Yu, an architect from Taiwan, the Chinese Garden’s concept is based on Chinese gardening art. The main characteristic is the integration of splendid architectural features with the natural environment. The Chinese Garden is modeled along the northern Chinese imperial style of architecture and landscaping.

The Japanese Garden is built on an artificial island adjacent to the Chinese Garden island, connected by a bridge called the Bridge of Double Beauty. Where the Chinese Garden is designed to be visually exciting, the Japanese Gardens are designed with a calmness to evoke inner peace and a meditative state. The styles and methods used for designing the garden are taken from Japan's Muromachi and Azuchi–Momoyama periods from the 14th-17th centuries.
