Prince Gong's Mansion (Gong Wang Fu), Beijing's largest and best-preserved Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) princely mansion, illustrates the culture and life style of Imperial China's elite. The mansion is located near Shichahai Lake, to the northwest of the Forbidden City in Beijing. This beautiful complex with Suzhou-style gardens owes its name to Prince Gong, who helped Empress Dowager Cixi assume power; In 1851 he received this mansion as a gift from his brother, the Qing Emperor Xianfeng (1851-1862).
