Chengde Mountain Resort

Chengde Mountain Resort is one of China's leading scenic spots and the world's largest imperial garden, which served as the summer resort for emperors of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Situated 256 kilometers northeast of Beijing, Chengde is surrounded with mountains. Built in the 42nd year of Emperor Kangxi's reign (1703), the Resort was the former out palace of Qing Dynasty emperors. The palace structures along with the adjacent temples demonstrate the different styles of architecture by various Chinese nationalities.
