Hall of Imperial Zenith

Picture 1 of 1

The whole group of buildings here was built for Qing Emperor Qianlong to relax after abdication. When Emperor Qianlong was 85 years old, his physical condition prevented him from doing the job any longer. One of his sons was over sixty and would soon miss the chance to be emperor. So he decided to let his son try. The old emperor abdicated in 1795 and four years later he died. This hall was left empty al-most for a century. After Empress Dowager Cixi came to power, performances by folk opera troupes were given here: Now the building is turned into an exhibition hall.
