Summer Palace Pt 1

Summer Palace is a gigantic summer resort built by the Empress Dowager Cixi, one of the most fearsome empress in the history of China. The Kunming Lake actually covers majority of the area of the summer resort, and it was used to grow fresh water pearls to be used for cosmetic purposes by the empress.

I had wanted to make only one post for the Summer Palace, but there turned out to be more photos than I thought so I'm separating it into two. :)
