It is said that the garden was where the great patriotic poet Lu You (1125-1210) in the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279) met his deeply-loved wife, Tang Wan, who was forced to depart from Lu You, in the 21st year of Shaoxing (1151). Lu You was so sad that he wrote the Phoenix Hairpin on the wall of the garden to express his sorrow for the departure with Tang Wan. Tang Wan saw this and replied with another poem. Her desperation and grief finally devoured her life a few days later. And their poems were ranked as masterpieces throughout the ages. Lu You felt regretful in all his whole life and paid visits to the garden for many times, there he wrote more than ten poems. Shenyuan was also historically renowned due to this sadly moving love story.
