Located in the center of Beijing, the Beihai Park is well known for its
Jade Islet, Beihai Lake and White Dagoba. The 35.9-meter-high White Dagoba,
which was firstly built in 165 L, sits on a Sumeru base built with bricks
and stones. Many halls and pavilions stand among green pines and cypresses,
in addition to a long corridor by the lake. The Beihai Park is an ideal
place for going boating in summer and skating in winter. Immediately outside
the southern gate is the Circular City, known as a small city in the city
proper of Beijing. The Hall of Receiving Light is in the center of the
Circular City, where visitors can see the 800-year-old pine tree planted
in the Kin Dynasty (1115-1234).
The Beihai Park can be reached by trolley bus Nos. 103, 109 and 1 11. and No. 101 Bus.
