Follow President Xi's footsteps to N China's Chengde Mountain Resort
President Xi Jinping on Tuesday made an inspection tour of Chengde City, north China's Hebei Province. He visited Chengde Mountain Resort, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site that once served Chinese emperors during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).
Built between 1703 and 1792, Chengde Mountain Resort, with its outlying temples, is the largest existing imperial palace-garden and temple complex in China. It is a masterpiece of Chinese palace architecture and gardening as it combines different architectural styles from across China and integrates elements from different ethnic groups and religions.
