After 5 very cold days, the weekend finally arrived. Unlike those freezing days, the weather was absolutely fantastic for Saturday. There were lots of people outside, walking, riding a bike, hanging around with their families and enjoying the sun. So I decided to get on my bike and explore some more of the campus and that’s how I ended up at Jinchun Garden.
On my way there, I took this picture of the Tsinghua Observatory.
Tsinghua water canal, which goes around most of the campus.
Entering the garden:
The Jichun Bridge:
Historians believe that Jinchun Garden was the residence of emperor Xian Feng before he succeeded his father. And it is
believed to be the inspiration for the well known essay “The View of the Lotus Pond in the Moonlight,” written by Zhu Ziqing.
The Han Pavilion:
The Han Pavilion is one of the most attractive sights in the Jinchun Garden. It was built in memory of the outstanding
Tsinghua graduate and history professor Wu Han.
