Beijing Taoranting Park
The Taoranting Park was established in 1952 and named after the Taoranting Pavilion, one of the 4 most renowned pavilions in China. The Park covers an area of 59 hectares, 17 of which are waters. It belongs to the first modern gardens in Beijing after the foundation of the People's Republic of China. This location used to be a famous scenic spot of Beijing with the reputation of "a fine resort in the capital city", thus containing a great number of historical heritages dated centuries ago. In addition to the household names such as the Taoranting Pavilion and the Cibei'an Nunnery, the park boasts appealing garden views, abundant cultural connotations and brilliant revolutionary deeds, all making an ideal destination of tourism and sightseeing.
Peripheral to the Taoranting Park are a host of well-known historical relics. The Longshu Temple to the northwest is known for the Jianjiayi Villa, the Tiannige Building, the Kanshan Tower, the Baobing Chamber and other buildings, which have attracted celebrities to visit and stay. The Temple has enjoyed a fame comparable to the Taoranting Pavilion since the reign of Daoguang Emperor of the Qing Dynasty. To the Southeast of the Taoranting Park lie the Heilongtan Pool, the Longwang Pavilion, the Nezha Temple, the Cimei Park and the Zu Garden; southwest the Fengshi Garden; north the Yaotai Kiln; and northeast the Xiangzhong Tomb, the Parrot Tomb, as well as the Drunk Guo's Tomb and the Tomb of Sai Jinhua built in the modern times. Most of the relics are originated earlier than the Taoranting Pavilion or even the Cibei'an Nunnery, carrying the legends of great writers and scholars while witnessing historic times in the past.
The Taoranting Park adopted Vionvision's people counting system in 2010 and has received precise people counting and analysis services ever since.
