Spacious Pavilion at Summer Palace

With an area of over 130 square meters, this is the most spacious pavilion of its type. When the Summer Palace was named the Garden of Clear Ripples, there was no wall on the east bank, so one could see afar from all four sides of the pavilion; thus, is was named the "Spacious Pavilion." Octagonal with double eaves, it was also called the "Pavilion of Eight Dimensions." Emperor Qianlong's poems and classical writings were inscribed on a board hanging inside the parvilion.
