Either we went to the wrong place or the only thing left of the palace is the gatekeeper's lodge, which houses some art and artifacts. Expecting more, we went out of the back and were greeted with quite simply, gardens in which people were flying kites. Not worth the subway trip to get there.

This place is terrible. There just stone on the ground. It is not well kept and there is NOTHING to see! So I really suggest to never visit this area unless you have time to waste!! Skip it and you will save time.

I remember on my last night, I decided to alight at every subway station on my way back to the hotel. At one of the stations, there was this park. Very interesting information about what it used to be. However, most of it is no longer standing. You can see children having skating lessons, like in any ordinary park.

Decided to take a look since I was in the area. Otherwise don't go out of your way. The entrance to the park was promising. However the rest of the 'ruins' appears to just be stumps of what may have been plinths or columns? Hard to tell. It is free and it is interesting to see retirees dancing and practicing... More

"Ruins" is stretching it. Even the rubble is gone. It's a park filled with old people, which is nice, but stone stumps and a couple of garden gnomes don't cut it in China.

Well worth a look. A step back in history. Visiting outside of winter, the tree-lined paths are impressive.
