The lotus pond used to be a place for ancient students to study. Here is the only well-preserved scripture in Xixia in the country. There is a Xunkan, and children regularly come here to learn ancient musical instruments.
Academies are different from official schools and private schools. Its characteristic is that the academy has a lot of books. Under the guidance of the instructor, people read, study, research, do knowledge, and write articles, so that the place can be called academy.
Baoding Ancient Lotus Pond is located in the center of Baoding City, across the road from the Museum of the Zhili Governor's Office and Daci Pavilion. The ancient lotus pond was built in 1227 AD at the turn of the Jin and Yuan Dynasties. It was originally called Xuexiang Garden and has a history of nearly 800 years. It was originally the residence of Zhang Rou, a famous military general in the late Jin Dynasty and early Yuan Dynasty. It has undergone historical changes in private, government, academies, palaces and public gardens. It is a national key cultural relics protection unit and one of the top ten gardens in China.
The overall area of the ancient lotus pond is not very large, but one step at a time, the towers, pavilions, bridges, corridors, and cultural monuments are full of history. It is a good place for people to appreciate the scenery, think about the ancient times and relax.
Nice view, full of fun, good value for money!
The academy is well-known all over the country, but it is a pity that Tsinghua and Peking University used to be.
