This Map provides a clear overview of most structures, palaces, towers and pavilions within the Beijing Summer Palace Park (YiHeYuan; Literally "Gardens of Nurtured Harmony"), located in the North-Eastern section of the Haidian District. The Map is however NOT complete and omits several large sections located South of the Wenchang Tower and Wenchang Imperial Art Gallery.

The first structures within the Park date from the year 1750 AD during the Qianlong Reign of the Qing Dynasty (1644 AD - 1911 AD) when the Palace was started as the "Garden of Clear Ripples". It grew into the main Imperial Summer Retreat after the burning of the Yuanmingyuan Summer Palace in 1860 AD. The Beijing Summer Palace Park was declared a (UNESCO) World Cultural Heritage Site in 1998, and remains the single most splendid example of preserved Chinese Imperial Palace Garden Architecture in the world today. (The other examples are Beihai Park (Beihai Gongyuan) in Beijing and "Fleeing the Heat Mountain Villa" (Bishu Shanzhuang) in Chengde (Jehol), Hebei Province). The extensive Palace Garden Park covers an a total area of 2.9 square kilometers and includes the largest hand-dug lake in the world, Kunming Lake.
