Mountain Resort and Its Outlying Temples, Chengde

As the summer palace of the royals of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), the resort in Chengde, Hebei province, was built in the 18th century as a large complex of palaces and ceremonial buildings. It also functioned as a political hub for emperors to handle national affairs. The site together with its outlying temples also witnessed the Manchu rulers holding autumn hunting based on their nomadic tradition and how they maintained close connection with leaders of various ethnic groups.

When visiting the site in 2021, Xi urged a further exploration of its rich spiritual legacy to consolidate cultural confidence and ethnic unity.
