Jing Shan Park

Five pavilions were built on the ridges in Jing Shan, one on each. There used to be a bronze statue of a god in each of the pavilions. Four of those were stolen by the allied forces (Britain, Germany, France, Russia, the United States, Italy, Japan and Austria) in 1900. The remaining one in the uppermost pavilion was badly damaged.

The picture is still the Gate of Spiritual Valor of the Forbidden City.
