Summer Palace, Beijing: 310 reviews and 617 photos
Originally a three-storey building named "Hall for Watching the Moon Toad", the hall was rebuilt with just one floor during the reign of Emperor Jiaqing. It became a wonderful place for emperors and empresses to enjoy the moonlight during summer and autumn evenings. Empress Dowager Cixi also sat here to watch Naval Academy manoeuvres.
