He built a straw-roofed house where he lived for about four years and composed more than 240 poems that are still popular today.
Constructions to pay homage of the great poet were built at the site of his residence after his death, and the renovation during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) set the scale and layout of the present garden-like museum, which now covers a total area of 300 mu (or about 20 hectares)).
