The Beijing Ming Tombs were severely damaged in the early years of the Ching Dynasty (1644 AD - 1911 AD). During the 18Th Century however, they were restored on the orders of the Qianlong Emperor ( 1736 AD - 1795 AD) out of respect for the Imperial History and the Heavenly Powers that ruled the Imperial Mandate.
