Description: Yu Garden or Yuyuen " Happy Garden " is an extensive Chinese garden located beside the City God Temple in Shanghai . Yu Garden was first conceived in 1559 during the Ming Dynasty by Pan Yunduan as a comfort for his father minister Pan En , in his old age . The garden was the largest of its era but eventually its expense helped ruin the Pan family . The garden was opened to the public in 1961 and then declared a national monument in 1982 .
