"Bronze Ox" Summer Palace Tip by Willettsworld

Summer Palace, Beijing: 311 reviews and 620 photos


Cast in 1755, this statue was also called the "Golden Ox". It was placed here in order to control floods. The 80-word ode entitled "Inscriptions on the Golden Ox" inscribed on its back was written by Emperor Qianlong in traditional, "seal" style calligraphy. It's, of course, a great place to have a photo taken.
