China Scenic - - SPECIAL REPORT -

Wan­fang Anhe (Peace and Har­mony Ev­ery­where or “Swastika House”) was con­structed dur­ing the early pe­riod of the Yongzheng Em­peror’s rule. The white mar­ble base of the build­ing lies in the mid­dle of wa­ter, and there are 33 in­ter­con­nect­ing halls. The en­tire con­struc­tion forms a“卍”,a sym­bol of peace and har­mony in the Bud­dhist tra­di­tion. The Bafang Pav­il­ion (Eight-square Pav­il­ion) adopted square col­umns in­stead of tra­di­tional round col­umns.
