"Seventeen arch Bridge" Summer Palace Tip by Willettsworld

Summer Palace, Beijing: 311 reviews and 620 photos

Built in 1750, this 150-metre long bridge links the east bank of the lake and South Lake Island. It is the longest bridge in any Chinese imperial garden. Over 500 stone lions in different poses were carved on the posts of the bridge's railings. Four strange animals were carved at both ends of the bridge.
