This walled estate is the final flourish of imperial China, built by the emperors of the Qing Dynasty between 1703 and 1792 as an escape from the heat and intrigue of court life in Beijing.
Inside, a replica of the Forbidden City stands among new palaces, temples, and other buildings, all beautifully landscaped to mirror different facets of the country.
