Huxingting Teahouse

Fighting evil spirits
This famous tea house dates back to the 19th century. It is a beautiful antique building in the middle of a small pond, and accessible via a funny little zigzag bridge. The zigzag is intended to ward off evil spirits, which are unable to go around corners. The whole area, Yu Gardens Bazaar, consists of houses and businesses that are built in the old style.
