Hebei chengde Imperial Summer Villa 7—— Queen Ci Xi residence
hebei

The Imperial Summer Villa is located in the city of Chengde in northeastern Hebei Province. Its construction started from the 42nd year of Emperor Kangxi's reign (1702), and completed in the 57th year of Emperor Qianlong's reign (1792). It is China's largest imperial garden, covering an area of 5.6 million sq. meters, and with a wall of 10km. surrounding the garden. The construction is mammoth, brilliant and magnificent..

The Summer Villa can be divided into two parts: the palace area and garden area. The former was located in the southeast part of the Mountain Resort. The garden area consists of the lake, plains and mountains.
 The palaces section, located by the main Lizheng Gate (Lizheng men), is where the Qing emperors conducted state affairs, away from sweltering Beijing. Upon entering the Lizheng Gate, you are faced by the Front (and rear) Palace (Zheng men), that contains the emperor's living quarters and the main throne hall. Today most of the rooms here are taken over by a museum, for the exhibit of Qing relics and artwork. To the west lies the West Palace (Xi gong), where the devious Empress Dowager Cixi lived when she came to stay in Chengde. The two other notable complexes in this area are the Pine and Crane Residence (Songhe zhai), where the concubines and the emperor's mother lived, and the Many Valleys of Rustling Pine Trees (Wanghe songfeng), mainly a study area for bygone emperors.
