Yuan Ming Yuan,|
The Ruins of "Garden of Gardens"
Yuan Ming Yuan was located to the east of
Summer Palace. Construction
started in 1709 and was completed after more
than 150 years. With an area of over 340
hectares and a building space of more than
160,000 square metres, the three-in-one garden
was considered a masterpiece of Chinese gardening.
The Ten-Thousand-Flower Labyrinth,
one of the scenes in the Garden of Perfect
Splendour, has been reconstructed. It is a
maze of winding paths between low walls in
the eastern part of the garden.
