West of the Forbidden City in Beijing, Beihai Park is the first royal garden in the world. It covers a total area of 69 hectares, and 39 hectares of it is covered with water. The rest of the land consists of three islands that symbolize Elysium. The Weng An Temple stands on top of Qiong Hwa Island, the center island. Bridges are built to connect the three islands.

Architectures at the Beihai Park are shaded with mythological and religious symbols. The design of Beihai Park has southern Chinese influences and northern Chinese characteristics.
