About Kaifeng

Kaifeng is located in eastern Henan. It is one of China's seven great ancient capitals and a famous historic city. Early during the Northern Song Dynasty this was the economic, cultural and legal center of China. Today it has become known as a bustling international metropolis. The famous scroll painting "Along the River During Qingming Festival" showcases the glory of Kaifeng during its era as the eastern capital of China. The current city of Kaifeng still has an ineffable air of antiquity. When searching for the ancient capital among the ruins and broken tiles, it is easy to find yourself imagining the incredible prosperity the city must have had at the time "Along the River During Qingming Festival" was painted. "Along the River" is far from being the only painting Kaifeng is famous for. The city has also been home over the years to many calligraphers and painters, and is known as a city of refined culture and entertainment. To stroll among the various local academies and theaters is a unique experience in and of itself.

Most of the buildings in Daxiangguo Temple today were rebuilt in recent years and the scale is much smaller than that of the original. Thousand-armed and Thousand-eyed Avalokiteshvara in the courtyard is a cultural relic of the Qianlong period from the Qing dynasty. There is also a bronze bell made in 1768, which is worth seeing.

Pullman Kaifeng Jianye is located in the former site of the northwestern lake in the northwest corner of Kaifeng Ancient City. It is adjacent to the ancient city wall on the west and north sides. The hotel address was originally a natural wetland landform, rich in water system, next to the hotel has a huge lake, blue waves, vast waves, wide view, overlooking the hotel's overall architecture, into a flower shape, blending into the surrounding lake, like A flower bloomed in a water. The hotel has an area of 400 acres, but only 186 rooms, to ensure a sense of space, but also to ensure privacy. The hotel is modern and simple, with a grand atmosphere, the beauty of the garden, and the charm of the Great Song. The hotel is based on the unique post-modern architectural style of the Northern Song Dynasty. It reflects the return to the truth. I heard that Chairman Hu Yusen of Jianye regarded this hotel as a work. This work is not only a exploration and revisit of the ancient capital of Kaifeng. It is the continuation and inheritance of the life of the Song Dynasty. Step into the guest room and try to figure out the design inside the room. The ancient style reveals the exquisiteness and the elegance reveals the elegance. Even more surprising is the fact that the rooms have direct access to the garden and the view. The lotus pond is full of gloom, and in the courtyard, the exquisite trails connect with each other, and the green bamboo trees are in harmony. There are mountains, water, flowers, and grass. In this beautiful scenery, I hope that the years will be quiet, and I hope to meet you here in a gentle time.
