An aerial view of YuanMingYuan 圆明园, BeiJing

YuánMíngYuán was the original Summer Palace, destroyed by imperialist British and French invaders.

The stone ruins are those of the 'Western-style Palces' commissioned by Emperor QianLong. All the Chinese artitecture within the extensive palace grounds was destroyed by fire once the treasures had been looted.
