Grand View Garden 大观园, BeiJing (slideshow)

Grand View Garden (DàGuānYuán) brings to life settings from the classic novel 'A Dream of Red Mansions' by Qing Dynasty writer Cao XueQin (17l5-l763).

With a new vista at every turn, these gardens are filled with archetypal Chinese scenery : rocky hills and tunnels, bridges, courtyards, pavilions, a Buddhist temple, corridors and more, all set in a lush landscape with a lake, streams and trees. There is also a hotel and restaurant.


The garden was originally constructed in the 1980s as the set for a long-running TV series.
