Guanyin Hall of Minor Western Heaven

Western Heaven in Buddhism is the Land of Extreme Happiness. Emperor Qian Long built the Guanyin Hall at Minor Western Heaven for his mother to pray for her happiness and longevity. It is the largest palatial hall in the style of a square pavilion in China. A plaque with the characters "Land of Extreme Happiness" in the handwriting of Emperor Qian Long hangs from the ceiling.

Jade Islet Stele

The towering ancient trees on the western slopes of Jade Flower Islet have created one of the Eight Views of Yanjing. It is known as "Jade Islet in Shady Springtime". The stele, erected in 1751, is inscribed with this phrase in the calligraphy of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing.

Nine-Dragon Screen

Made in 1756, the screen wall is five meters high, 1.2 meters thick and 27 meters long. The whole thing is built with glazed color bricks. On either side of it there are nine dragons, also made of glazed bricks, each playing with a pearl amidst waves of clouds.
