Summer Palace, an imperial garden in Beijing

The Summer Palace, originally named Qingyi Yuan, or the Garden of Clear Ripples, was an imperial garden constructed in 1750 by Emperor Qianlong in a bid to celebrate his mother's birthday. During the past few centuries, emperors and empresses spend their leisure time in the location, which is of great aesthetic value. The Summer Palace was added to the list in November, 1998.
