Lijiang Things to Do: 232 reviews and 540 photos

 
 

This pavilion was built in the Wanli period of the Ming Dynasty (1573-1619) and then rebuilt in the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty. It used to be the library of the former magistrate of the Lijiang prefecture. The weight of the double-eaved roof is borne by brackets. The partition doors and windows are carved with flowers, birds of the four seasons and the pattern of good luck.
