Located at the foot of the Lanpu Dashilin Mountain, covering an area of 1.4 square kilometers, the New Yuanming Palace is a reproduction of the imperial Yuanming Palace in Beijing, one of the favorite gardens of the late emperors of the Qing dynasty. It was burnt down and completely destroyed by British and French troops in 1860. The New Yuanming Palace was built as a reminder of the glory and the bitter history of ancient China and has been set up as a patriotism education site.The park is opent to public in 1996. Walking around the theme park can take you about 2 hours and English-speaking guide can be hired at the gate.
The park is enlivened by performers dressed up as soldiers and court ladies. In the evening, there is always a great show at a big outdoor theatre behind the Lama Temple which can hold as many as 5,000 people. The show is made up of several episodes including an Accession to the Throne, Concubine Picking and Burning down of the Palace. There is also a nice restaurant in the park where you can find some “imperial Qing food”.
