Prince Gong’s Mansion Introduction

Introduction
Prince Gong's Mansion is situated o­n the West Qianhai Street. It is the best preserved princely residence of the Qing Dynasty. In 1982, it was placed o­n the list of major historic sites under state protection. Its garden opened to the public in 1988. In 2003, the “Prince Gong's Mansion Administrative Office of the Ministry of Culture” changed its name into the “Prince Gong's Mansion Administrative Center of the Ministry of Culture”. Under the support of the leadership of  the government and the Ministry of Culture, the center takes the reservation and renovation of the ancient architectural complex as its primary task, and will spare no efforts to make it a national museum for princely residences in 2008.
Prince Gong’s Mansion was built in the 41st year of the reign of the Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty (A.D. 1776). It originally belonged to He Shen, the Councilor of the Court who was in the favor of Emperor Qianlong. In the fourth year of the Emperor Jiaqing’s reign (A.D. 1799), He Shen was criminalized and ordered to commit suicide. The Emperor then gave the residence to his younger brother, Yong Lin and named it Prince Qing Mansion. In the first year of the Emperor Xianfeng’s reign (A.D. 1851), the emperor took it back, granted it to his younger brother Yi Su and gave it its present name.
