Digital reconstruction of the Yuanming Yuan palace complex, known in the Western World as the Old Summer Palace. This reconstruction depicts Haiyantang ("The Palace of Calm Seas"), a two-story western-style palace with a magnificent water clock. The palaces were largely destroyed by British and French forces during the Second Opium War (1856-1860 CE). The palace sustained further damage during the Boxer Rebellion (1899-1901 CE) and the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976 CE).
