Guiyuan Garden, the residence of Kuomintang’s General Zhang
Zhizhong, is located at No.65, 4th Zhongshang Road, Yuzhong area,
covering an area of 7,00 square meters. The main building is made
of brick and wood. There are two sweet-scented osmanthus trees
located in an unattached yard with its front door facing the
street. Guiyuan is the Chinese Pinyin of sweet-scented osmanthus,
that's why people named it as Guiyuan Garden.
The Guiyuan Garden is famous
for the history of Kuomintang-Communist cooperation and
confrontation before the founding of P.R.China. In August 1945,
Chairman Mao Zedong arrived at Chongqing for the Zhongqi negotiation, which was an important event in
China civil war. General Zhang ZhiZhong arranged Chair Mao and
Vice-chair Zhou Enlai to reside in Guiyuan Garden.
