Beijing Grand View Garden Maps

The Grand View Garden was built according to the vivid description in a classical masterpiece A Dream of Red Mansions written by Caoxueqin, which reproduced the elegant residence of the aristocrat in the feudal society. Located on the bank of the city moat, Xuanwu District, where was once the site of royal gardens of the Ming and Qing dynasties, the Grand View Garden was first built in 1984 with the original purpose of creating a site for making A Dream of Red Mansion into TV series.

This great garden occupies an area of 13 hectares (32 acres), a truthful representation of the fictitious extraordinary garden. Charming pavilions, twisting cloisters, thriving trees and flowers and lakes with clear ripples make up this dream-like place. The Yihong Courtyard where Jian Baoyu (charater in the novel) lives, is magnificent; the Bamboo Lodge where Lin Daiyu lives is quite serene; and the house for Jia Yuanchun's temporary stay is quite imperial, elegant and radiant.

Beijing Grand View Garden

Permanent exhibitions in the garden make the literary masterpiece, A Dream of Red Mansions, familiar to the visitor. Many distinctive activities are held, like temple fairs and celebrations on the Mid-autumn Day. Grand performances, Yuan Concubine's Visit, are really a sparkle. The actors and actress in the ancient costumes give an excellent narration of specific plots from the novel. A scenic location in the northeast of the garden named Great Void Dreamland shows a movie which highlights scenes from the novel. Water-scene movies and performances are also performed in the evening.
