Old Summer Palace

Brianne visited the Old Summer Palace. The Palace is also known as the Gardens of Perfect Brightness, but was originally named the Imperial Gardens. The Palace is known for its collection of garden and building architectures, and other works of art. It was built in the 18th and early 19th centuries for the emperors of the Qing Dynasty to live and handle government affairs. During the Second Opium War (1860), it was initially destroyed by the British.

Wow, that was an amazing and very beautiful palace I had ever seen. The garden inside is really wonderful and also the architecture.
