Jingshan Park

Directly north of the Forbidden City you will find the beautiful Jingshan Park. It contains a number of imperial pavilions and the one located at the top of the hill in the park has a marvelous view overlooking the city. From here you can view the whole Forbidden City with all its imperial palace buildings to the south.

View to the north from Wanchun Pavilion (All Time Spring Pavilion)

Jingshan Park's hill is topped by five pavilions, the main one of which contains a large Buddha statue. The pavilion is from 1751, named All Time Spring Pavilion and is 17.4 meters high.
