Shanxi jincheng Royal Prime Minister's Palace 3—— the ancient oriental Castle
shanxi

Royal Prime Minister’s Palace is located in Jincheng city, Shanxi Province. Once called as “the Castle and Mansion of the Prime Minister” (Huangcheng Xiangfu, or Royal Prime Minister’s Palace), by Emperor Qianlong of Qing Dynasty, it was the royal residence of the prominant Prime Minister Chen Jingting, who was the royal teacher of Emperor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Mr. Chen was also a famous statesman, writer, idealist, philosopher and poet, and served as the editor-in-chief of the famous Kangxi Zidian Dictionary.

Emperor Kangxi gave this palace to Chen Jingting to show his appreciation to his teacher. The complex now hosts a great number of Chen Jingting's posthumous works and the emperor's handwritings.
Covering an area of 90,000 meters square with 19 gardens and courtyards, 640 rooms and 9 castle gates, the complex is comprised of officer's dwelling place, ancient homes of literary men and folk houses. This palace was surrounded by a wall 1700 meters long and 12 meters high, and designed and built for strong defense from inside and outside. It is also called Turtle City (which means strong for ever), because when viewed from the top, it looks like a turtle facing the northern sea.
