"Hall of Embracing the Universe" Summer Palace Tip by Willettsworld

Summer Palace, Beijing: 311 reviews and 620 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.
