Summer Palace - YiHeYuan

Summer Palace is the distillate of wisdom as well as the works collecting the previous success of all the private gardens’ excellence in the south and north. Today, YiHeYuan has turned out to be the most completed and the largest imperial garden in China. This Chinese garden with a long history is a unique landscape quite different from ancient European imperial gardens. Both the bureaucrat’s richness and power and the construction of the private gardens were seeking a harmonious integration of natural and artistic beauty just as its name “YiHeYuan” goes: the Garden of Harmonious Unity.
It served four generations of the imperial family. As we see today what it looks like, the design gives prominence to Longevity Hill (Wanshoushan) and Kunming Lake. Besides these two parts, we could still define a part of the long corridor. Summer Palace, as an important venue for Qing political activities, has recorded many historical lives in palace.
