Everybody gets so dominated by the freshness and beauty of the gardens, that the temptation is to skip the houses, as a common detail.

I think it would be wrong.

More than in the Forbidden City, the houses here give a more lively idea of their use, and though more discreet, they are also good examples of Chinese architecture.
