The kiosk of the old catalpa is located in the garden of Qianlong. It has a tent-shaped gable and hip roof. It is the wooden ceiling that catches the most attention, it is carved with hundreds of flowers. In the center there are three horizontal inscriptions and a pair of verses written by Emperor Qianlong (1736-1795). In front of the pavilion we find an old tree, a catalpa, hence the name of the kiosk.
