Zhan Yuan Garden (Chinese: 瞻园) is a botanical garden, located on No. 128 Zhan Yuan Road, beside Fu Zi Temple, Nanjing, Jiangsu Province,[1]

The first garden on this site was built during the early Ming Dynasty by General Xu Da. It was destroyed during the uprising of Tai Ping Tian Guo, but rebuilt during the Qing Dynasty. It was visited by the Quinlong emperor and was restored in the last century sometime after 1949, with the southern 'mountain' added in 1960.[2]
