Pavilion for abstinence (Zhai gong)

This pavilion was built in 1731 during the Qing Dynasty. As the name suggests, it was meant to abstain from drinking wine, eating onions, chives or garlic. The eastern rooms have on the walls poems written by officials, and they are praised for the solemn ceremonies held here.
