Beihai Park




Beihai Park is in the center of downtown Beijing, just north of the Forbidden City and west of Jingshan Park. It was the pleasure palace of Liao, Jin, Yuan, Ming and Qing emperors, and the park is one of the oldest, largest and best-preserved ancient imperial gardens in China.

It reflects not only a classic combination of the grandiosity of Chinese northern gardens and the refinement of the southern gardens, but also perfectly integrates magnificent imperial palaces with solemn religious constructions.
