In terms of the general layout, architectural styles, construction techniques, decoration details and garden landscape, the Mountain Resort, a vast complex of palaces and administrative and ceremonial buildings built between 1703 and 1792, represents the broad exchange and convergence between Han culture and the ethnic cultures - Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism - and the architectural styles between China's north and south.

Covering a total area of 611.2 hectares, the Mountain Resort has temples of many architectural styles and imperial gardens blend effortlessly into a landscape of lakes, pastureland and forests.

The Mountain Resort was added to the list on December 15, 1994.
