After Lunch, you will visit the Chengde Mountain Resort. It was built in 1703, it took 87 years to finish this resort. It is the largest imperial garden during Qing Dynasty amd be a summer resort for emperors. Over two hundred years ago
Emperor Kang Xi (1662-1723) happened to find the place while making a
hunting trip. The palace is surrounded by a wall over
ten kilometers long, meandering along the mountain ridges. It is the
largest and best-preserved imperial palace outside of the capital
Next, you will visit the Pule Temple. It is constructed in the form of a Tibetan mandala built upon three square platforms. The mandala design was likely chosen for several reasons. First, it was both an architecturally and a spiritually symbol for the Mongol tribes who visit the Pule Temple to commemorate. Secondly, it was a sensible design for marking a point along the axis defined by Jinshan Temple and Qingchui Peak, since the entire world was often depicted as a mandala form with its central axis around Mount Sumeru. In this case, the Pule Temple created a third and central axis mundi at Chengde and reoriented the entire landscape around it. Qingchui Peak, Jinshan Temple and the other outer temples then became satellites in Pule Temple's orbit.
After the tour, you will be taken back to your hotel in Chengde.
After breakfast, drive you to Putuo Zongcheng Temple, it is also called Little Potala Palace. It was built in 1767. It is one of the Eight Outer Temples outside the Summer Resort. It is similar to the Potala Palace in Lhasa. The buildings are a blend of Han and Tibetan styles. It used to be a location for important religion ceremonies. Now, it has become an important monument in Chengde.
And then pay a visit to Puning Temple, which means " Temple of Unervisal Peace". It is a buddhist temple in Chengde. It was built in 1755 during the reign of the Qianlong Emperor in the Qing dynasty. It is near the Chengde Mountain Resort and alongside the equally famed Putuo Zongcheng Temple. Puning is one of the "Eight Outer Temples" of Chengde. As of 1994, the Chengde Mountain Resort and Chengde's Eight Outer Temples (including the Puning Temple) were established as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Today, the Puning Temple remains a site of tourist attraction and local festivities.
After lunch, transfer to Chengde train station to take train back to Beijing. You will be taken back to your hotel once you arrive in Beijing.
