Jichang Garden (Garden for Ease of Mind), located at the eastern foot of Huishan Hill and north side of Huishan Temple, is a noted ancient garden in Wuxi. In the early Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), Qin Jin, a military official in Nanjing, made the place into a garden villa. Later, it was renamed Jichang Garden. Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) visited the garden 13 times and was so impressed by its design that he ordered an imitation of the garden to be built in the Summer Palace in Beijing which was named the Xiequ Garden (Garden of Harmonious Interest).
