Beijing

The Summer Palace Covering a space of 2.9 square kilometers, the Summer Palace located on Kunming Lake. It was originally constructed by emperor Wanyan Liang during the Jin Dynasty to be his capital. It has also been called "The Garden of Clear Ripples" and Yihe Yuan. The Summer Palace has been destoyed many times . During the Boxer Rebellion in 1900, the palace and gardens were mostly destroyed. They have been under constant repair, but progress is slow because of the lack of original plans.

Beijing, sometimes called called Peking, is the current capital of the People's Republic of China. It is one of the most populated cities in the world with more than 20 million people. It is one of the four ancient cities of China and is the most famous and best preserved. With a recorded history that goes back over 3000 years, it has been the capital for many dynasties, such as the Liao, Jin, Yuan, Ming and Qing. These dynanasties reigned for over 800 years and a total of 34 emperors have lived and ruled in the city. World War I broke out at the end of the Qing Dynasty. The war ended the dynasties of China. The city of Beijing was the focus of invadors and disrupted society. For the next 30 years there was no government. In 1949, the People's Republic of China was founded and Beijing named as it's capital city.

The Temple of Heaven Constructed between 406 and 420, the Temple of Heaven stands as a major landmark in central Beijing. It was contructed under the rule of the Yongle Emperor, but was renamed and extended in the 6th century during the rule of the Jiajing Emperor. Then, 1000 years later, the temple was repaired. Even though it is a place of peace, it has been used for millitery uses as well. For example, it was used as a command center for the Eight Nation Alliance. But then the temple was in ruins. In 1914 though, the temple was repaired and opened to the public.

The Forbidden City Made almost six hundred years, the forbidden city was the home of twenty four dynastic clans for five hundred years. With its amazing array of treasuers, It has a total of nine thousend nine hundred ninety rooms! The forbidden city is one of the best perserved palaces in all of china. One thing that helped keep the city safe was it's 10 meter high wall. Four walls were built around the city with four stunning watchtowers to connect the walls. To finish off the defensive wall, a moat surrounds the city.
