Type of View:
Lotus Pavilion (Furong Xie), view into the central chamber, showing the scholar stone mounted at the center
Date of View:
The Lotus pavilion has a terrace on two sides (south and west) with a hipped gable roofline and a portico on all four sides. It overlooks a lotus pond and was named for the verse by Yang Wangli, "To the horizon green lotus leaves seem to extend infinitely; under the sun reddish lotus flowers go bright scarlet." A scholar stone is mounted in the middle.
