Jingshan Park (景山公园)

The Jingshan Park is a picturesque royal garden and the largest garden to appreciate the peonies. Jingshan's history dates back to the Liao and Jin dynasties, almost a thousand years ago. It is one of the oldest and most completely preserved imperial gardens in China, and used to be an integral part of the imperial palace.

Located in the centre of Beijing City, the park covers 230,000 sq.m. The artificial hill Jingshan stands is of 45.7 meters of relative height and 94.2 meters of elevation. All the Landscapes are completely preserved, including hills in the Liao Dynasty, walls and palace gates of the Jin Dynasty as well as ancient architectural complexes built in the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties

Inside the Jingshan Park arranges five summits, and on each summit stands a pavilion---- the Wanchun Pavilion on the middle summit, the Guanmiao Pavilion and Zhoushang Pavilion on east summits and the Yifang Pavilion and Fulan Pavilion on west summits. Standing atop the Jingshan hill you can take in the stunning panorama of the ancient capital Beijing.

The Jingshan Park is home to tens of thousands of peonies and Chinese herbaceous peonies, and it hosts a peony exhibition in spring, a lotus exhibition in summer, and a chrysanthemum exhibition in autumn each year. Blossoms grace the park in all three seasons while pines and cypresses are evergreen in all four seasons.

The Guandi Temple ancient architectural complex has recently opened to visitors for the first time. Located on the northeast side of the park, Guandi Temple (a.k.a. Huguo Zhonhyi Temple) was first built in the Ming Dynasty dating back over six centuries. At present it covers an area of 1710 sq.m, with a floor area of 310 sq.m. There are two courtyards arranged on the axis, dedicated to the Divus Guan (“Guandi”) and the True Warrior Great Deity (“Zhenwudadi”) respectively.
