Pavilion of auspicious clarity

Pavilion of auspicious clarity (Chengrui ting)

This pavilion is in the imperial garden. It was built in 1583 during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). It has a veranda and rests on a single arch bridge that extends over a fish pond. This square pavilion has four open sides and a pyramid-shaped roof with green ceramic tiles. The adjoining veranda has a rolled roof, which is rather original. The pavilion is symmetrical with the floating Jade Pavilion (Fubi ting) on the east side of the garden.
