Jingshan Park

With its priceless views, Jingshan Park north of Forbidden City, was shaped from the earth excavated to create the palace moat. The hill supposedly protects the palace from the evil spirits – or dust storms—from the north.


During legation days- in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when the foreign powers had a presence in Beijing- the mound was called coal Hill. It was Beijing's highest point during the Ming dynasty, clamber to the top of this regal pleasure garden for a magnificent panorama of the capital and an unparalleled overview of the russet roofing of the Forbidden City. On the eastern side of the park a locust tree stands in the place where the last of the Ming Emperors, Chongzhen, hung himself as rebels swarmed at the city walls.
