Reviews about Jingshan Park


Reviewed on 20 Aug 2017

For me, Jingshan Park was nearly as the Beijing Childrens Palace when I was a child. The Childrens Palace took over some parts of the Jingshan. I had to go to there every weekend for my class.My best memory was riding the bicycle with my parents to there. At that time, my dad always be the guidance of us, we passing through many alleys which ive never heared about. Beijing fainted in the rays of the sunset, the old-gray-brick-walls were gradually wrapped around with golden voile, the summer-light-wind brings a special scent of the sandalwood, thats my memory of childhood.

In the three generations of Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties, Jingshan and its adjacent buildings are not only a royal garden for tourists, but also have multiple functions such as custom shooting, ceasefire, ancestor worship, official study, farming, opera and religion. The lush pines and cypresses in the garden and the knitting of tourists are the unique features of the imperial city of Beijing. This is a small hill in Yuan Dynasty, named "Qingshan". According to legend, when the Forbidden City was built in Ming Dynasty, coal was piled here, so it is commonly known as "Meishan". In Yongle period of Ming Dynasty, the soil of excavated moat was piled up here and built into a tall earth hill, called "Longevity Hill", also known as "Zhenshan" of Danei, and one of Jingshan was renamed in the early Qing Dynasty. The five pavilions on the hill were built during the reign of Qianlong. Among them, Wanchun Pavilion, located at the peak of Jingshan, is the highest and best scenic spot on the north-south axis of Beijing. You can see the splendid palace of the Forbidden City in the south, the bell and Drum Tower in the north axis and the White Pagoda in the North Sea in the west. At that time, the mountain jungle sheltered the sun, deer cranes in groups, full of vitality, very rich natural wild interest, planting flowers and plants, fruit trees, known as "back garden", the feudal emperors often come here to enjoy flowers, arrows, banquets, mountain climbing sightseeing, is a beautiful imperial garden. At the end of the Ming Dynasty, Li Zicheng's rebellious army invaded Beijing in March 1644. Emperor Zhu of Chongzhen fled to Jingshan, consciously deserving of his ancestors'foundation. He used his belt to do his best on the crooked-necked locust tree under Guanmiao Pavilion. During the ten-year turmoil, the old locust tree was cut down as "Four Old". In 1981, an ancient locust tree was newly transplanted at its original site. In 1996, an ancient locust tree with more than 150 years of age replaced the one transplanted in 1981. Pagoda tree. During the Gengzi Incident in Guangxu 26 (1900), the eight-nation coalition forces (Britain, the United States, France, Russia, Germany, Japan, Italy and Austria) occupied Beijing. Jingshan was badly damaged. Four Buddhist statues in the five pavilions were looted and all the treasures displayed in the palaces were looted.
