Qianlong Garden, China
A Heritage from Home Virtual Tour
The private retreat of the Qing Dynasty’s fourth emperor, located in the heart of the legendary Forbidden City in Beijing, China, Qianlong Garden spans over two acres. Across its four courtyards, elaborate rockeries, and 27 pavilions and structures, the centuries-old garden boasts flawlessly preserved spaces and interiors straight from Imperial China.
Join our Field Representative Dr. Liu Chang for a virtual visit of the site’s extravagant decors and an exploration of WMF’s nineteen-year effort to preserve them in collaboration with the Palace Museum. This guided tour will explore the history and complexity of Qianlong Garden’s first pavilion, Juanqinzhai, and highlight the bold designs of the majestic Fuwangge pavilion.
