It is one of Major Historical and Cultural Site Protected at the National Level, with 75 hectares of land occupation, including 15 hectares of water area.

  The Clean Heart Garden was built in the 19th year of the Kangxi reign of the Qing dynasty and renamed as Jingming Garden in 31th year of Kangxi.

 

  Jingming Garden was burnt down by Anglo-French Allied Force and Eight-Nation Alliance in 1860 and 1990 respectively.

With another major renovation in 1750, Jingming Garden added numerous buildings, including Jade Peak Pagoda and the so-called Sixteen Great Views of Jingming Garden.

 

 

  After the People’s Republic of China was founded, Jingming Garden was the summer retreat of national leaders and was renovated. The plan to arrest the Gang of Four was formulated here.
