Originally built in 1750 by the emperor Qianlong to celebrate his mother’s birthday, The Summer Palace was used at the time as a pleasure garden for emperors and empresses.

Appraised as the most perfectly preserved imperial garden with the richest man-made scenery and the most concentrated architecture in the world. It was inscribed on the World Heritage List by The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural organization in 1988 and has become a park of high culture value for tourists and a treasure of human civilization.
