Mountain Resort and its Outlying Temples, Chengde (China)

The Mountain Resort (the Qing dynasty's summer palace), in Hebei Province, was built between 1703 and 1792. 
It is a vast complex of palaces and administrative and ceremonial buildings. 
Temples of various architectural styles and imperial gardens blend harmoniously into a landscape of lakes, pastureland and forests. 
In addition to its aesthetic interest, the Mountain Resort is a rare historic vestige of the final development of feudal society in China.
