THE PALACE OF ESTABLISHED HAPPINESS: Restoring a Garden in the Forbidden City
Filled with exquisite pavilions, weathered rocks, sunken courtyards and winding galleries, this Garden in the northwest quarter of the Forbidden City in Beijing became Emperor Qianlong's favorite retreat. In 1923, the Garden burnt down, and in 1998, the Hong Kong based China Heritage Fund offered to support a restoration. This is an account of that five year plan. Well illustrated in color.
