Facing the north gate of the Forbidden City, Jingshan Park originally was an imperial garden and was opened to the public in 1928. It was built on the Jingshan, an artificial hill constructed from the soil excavated when digging the moats of the Imperial Palace during the reign of Emperor Yongle of the Ming Dynasty. The Jingshan Hill has five individual peaks, and on each peak there is a pavilion built during the reign of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty. Inside each pavilion a bronze Buddha was worshipped. However, they were all lost during the war of 1900. Jingshan Park has been restored several times after the founding of the Republic of China. Today, it is one of the must-see attractions in Beijing. It receives more than 2 million visitors every year.
