Old Summer Palace
Old Summer Palace (Yuanmingyuan Park) consists mainly of broken columns and marble facades of the pleasure palace of the Qing Dyansty Kongxi Emperor. The original palace, which was highly influenced by Western designs, was destroyed by Anglo-French troops who set fire to it after the Taiping Rebellion in 1860. Few relics survived the three-day fire, but traces of the palace's architectural beauty can still be seen. The site, including a vast lake, is far larger than the new Summer Palace. Offering the charm and romance of abandoned ruins, one of the highlights of the park is a fully intact labyrinth.
