A Beautiful Day at the Summer Palace

  Beijing's Summer Palace was a royal palace in later Qing Dynasty, only secondary to the Forbidden City (now the Palace Museum).

 

  The Summer Palace is actually not just a royal palace where once Princess Dowager Cixi and the emperor lived and handled court affairs, accepted laudations and received foreign diplomats during their stay in the Summer Palace. It also epitomizes classical Chinese architecture, in terms of both garden design and construction. It is the largest royal garden in China.
