Seize the History of Beihai Park
Because of the best location surrounded by famous imperial sections, Beihai Park has become the must-explore spot. Located in the center of Beijing, Beihai Park is rented as one of the oldest, largest and best-preserved ancient imperial gardens. Same as other imperial buildings, the park also housed profound history. It is said that in Chinese ancient times, there were three magic mountains. The god lived in the mountains and has the herb which could help the humans gain immortality. So the emperors at that time seek the mountains but failed. So, after that, around their palaces, they will dig one large pool and piled up three earth hills. It was believed that different mountain-water area will arouse different effect. From then on, every emperor during the succeeding dynasties built a royal garden with one pool with three hills. So, the Beihai was formed under the idea. In fact, this park was built in the Liao Dynasty and experienced renovation in the succeeding dynasties.
