A Paradise Lost — the old Summer Palace 2017-06-27

 

The old Summer Palace was one of the famous imperial gardens in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912). It is known for its wide collection of gardens, architecture and precious works of art, and renowned as " Model of Gardens " and “Garden of Gardens”. In the Qing Dynasty, there were five emperors having resided and handled national affairs in the old Summer Palace. Back then, it was one of two political centers in China along with the Forbidden City (the present Palace Museum). However, in 1860, the old Summer Palace was burned down by British and French soldiers and many of its precious items were also ransacked.
