The Fragrant Hill Park Introduction

Introduction
The Fragrant Hills Park (Xiangshan Park) is located 20 kilometers northwest of Beijing . The name of the park doesn't derive from the fresh air or aroma in the area, but in the shape of the hills themselves. Fragrant Hills Park is a large park of hills and forest covering 160 hectares (395.4 acres). The park was first built in 1186 in the Jin Dynasty (1115-1234) and later extended to a large scale in the Yuan and Ming dynasties. In 1745, Emperor Qianlong (1711-1799) ordered the addition of many new halls, pavilions and gardens and gave it a new name, Jingyi Garden (Garden of Tranquility and Pleasure). Since 1949, with a half-century's restoration and development by Chinese government, Fragrant Hills Park has been recognized as o­ne of the ten most famous parks in Beijing.

The Fragrant Hill Park Features

Highlights
The Fragrant Hills Park is also known as the Garden of Congenial Tranquility. However it is generally pretty busy here unless you escape the crowds and head into the woods. Take a chair-lift or hike up the peak itself for great views of the surrounding countryside. o¬nce you reach "Incense burner peak" and, if you are felling fit and brave, head off o¬n some of the marked trails and delve into the woodlands.The hills and woods were a favorite country retreat of the emperors. The building of Temples began here in the Jin Dynasty (1186 AD) and by the Qing Dynasty, (1745 AD) 28 had been erected in the Garden of Congenial Tranquility. In 1860 and again in 1900, the Garden was seriously destroyed by fire and many of the temples and halls ruined. Today, o¬nly some of the buildings have been restored. When the Central Committee of the Communist Party moved to Beijing from Hubei, Mao made Double Purity Villa his residence here. Inside the Villa are various displays and cultural relics. However, it's the views of the countryside, which are the most attractive thing about the Park. From Ghost Fear peak o¬n a fine day, (Ghosts apparently fear heights!) o­ne can see the Yongding River, Luding Bridge, Prospect Hills, Summer Palace, Yuquan Hill and the outskirts of the city.
