The Summer Palace After Snow

  The Summer Palace is located on the western edge of Beijing's Haidian district, between the fourth and fifth ring roads, close to the western Fragrant Hills, 12km from central Beijing.

 

  As its name implies, the Summer Palace was used as a summer residence by China's imperial rulers - as a retreat from the main imperial palace now known as the Palace Museum (or 'Forbidden City') - a pleasure-ground in the countryside, yet near to the city.

 

  Dispite naming as the "Summer" Palace, it is even more beautiful after winter snow.
