"Spacious Pavilion" Summer Palace Tip by Willettsworld

Summer Palace, Beijing: 311 reviews and 620 photos


When the Summer Palace was named the Garden of Clear Ripples, there was no wall on the east bank, so one could see afar from all four sides of this pavilion; thus it was named the "Spacious Pavilion". Emperor Qianlong's poems and classical writings were inscribed on a board hanging inside the pavilion.
