Yuanmingyuan, also known as the Old Summer Palace, is a site filled with palaces and gardens used by emperors in the Qing dynasty, China’s last dynasty. The complex contains both Chinese and western architecture, and still retains much of its bygone glory through reconstruction following its destruction by French and British troops during the Second Opium War in 1860.
