Geocache Description:

The Old Summer Palace, known in China as the Gardens of Perfect Brightness (Yuánmíng Yuán), and originally called the Imperial Gardens (Yù Yuán), was a complex of palaces and gardens 8 kilometers (5.0 mi) northwest of the walls of the Imperial City in Beijing, built in the 18th and early 19th century, where the emperors of the Qing Dynasty resided and handled government affairs (the Forbidden City was used only for formal ceremonies).

Hanjingtang in the central area of Changchun Garden was the largest architectural cluster in the imperial garden. Surrounded by hills and lakes, the main part comprised three major groups of architectures from souht to north:Hanjing Hall, Chunhua Hall and Yunzhen Hall. Together, they were 300 meters long from south to north and 150 meters wide from east to west, covering 45.000 square meters of land. They were originally built 1770 for the retirement life of Emperor Quianling after ruling China for 60 years

When Yuánmíng Yuán was destroyed in 1860, this place was still guarded by night watchers. Empress Dowager Cixi visited the place several times.
