BeiHai Park

Beijing, China

The Peaceful Heart Garden

Originally built during the Ming Dynasty, it was enlarged in 1759 and again in 1885. It is also known as the 'Minor Garden of Emperor Qian Long'. It covers an area of 8,700 square metres.

JingXinZhai is a classical design combining the private garden style of the south and the imperial garden style of the north.

Lotus and water-lilly ponds, covered walkways, rock gardens, hills and tunnels, stone bridges, galleries and pavilions fill this beautiful area.




There is also a charming tea house set in a pavillion over the water.


It is easy to miss the entrance to this area; it is flanked by two shops opposite a small-boat harbour.
