The Summer Palace The Summer Palace

The Summer Palace

Also known as Yiheyuan (Gardens of Nurtured Harmony), the Summer Palace is a beautiful destination on the outskirts of Beijing. Visitors wonder at its rolling hills, temples, gardens, lakes, and bridges. The palace was built in 1750 as a resort for Qing dynasty emperors. Today, it stands as a beautiful remnant of classical Chinese architecture. Its gardens and design have also been maintained in their traditional form. The palace has three primary areas: the Court, Longevity Hill, and Kunming Lake. Longevity Hill and Kunming Lake are the most popular places to see among tourists, with Kunming being a direct imitation of the famous West Lake in Hangzhou. Longevity Hill is about 60 m high, and many beautiful pavilions and halls stand on its front side. The Long Corridor contains many paintings of famous places in China. Although the Summer Palace is popular, it is one of Beijing's best places for quiet beauty.
