Jingshan Park

¥5 - ¥10
JingShan Park (Scenic Hill Park), a beautifully landscaped garden, lies directly north of the Forbidden City (it is one of the best spot to see the forbidden city in its entirety) and a short walk east of BeiHai Park. It is 230,000 square meters in area and filled with fruit trees, pines and cypress trees. A garden here first appeared around 1180 during the Jin Dynasty, although in imperial times it was for the exclusive use of the emperor.

The park is centered around a hill - almost the only one in Beijing city - on the traditionally important north-south axis. This artificial hill was constructed from the earth and rocks excavated to form the moat of the Forbidden City and nearby canals, around 1420 when the Forbidden City was being constructed under Ming emperor YongLe. This is especially impressive when one considers that all of this material was moved without machinery.
