Pavilion of the extension of grace (Chizao tang)

The Grace Extension Pavilion is a small building located in the Imperial Gardens. Built under the Ming (1368-1644), this pavilion was a library where the works of the four imperial libraries of Emperor Qianlong (1736-1795) were held. The latter went there when he wanted to read at his free time. This 12,000-volume collection is now preserved in the Taipei Palace Museum.
