Was there back in May 2015 on a raining afternoon, I've realised that it was important to see the palace/pagoda in the very far side of the ancestral house. There weren't a lot of people there, so I felt quite happy. Overall, I think the temple is very big and can house a total of 300 people. Have a good... More

As I visited on a regular weekday afternoon in winter, the place was not crowded. The tallest building (as seen in the picture) is a 5-storey monument (accessible by elevator) to the life, philosophies and works of Justice Bao, a judge renowned for his sense of righteousness and equity as much as for his "blackened" face. In reality, at least... More

Lord Bao was a judge in ancient China. And he was not political in all his dealings. He was a tough judge, but a fair judge. He was willing to go after royalty and peasant's alike for broken laws and rules. The grounds are beautifully kept, lots of Lotus flowers, wax museum displays and signs in both English and Mandarin.... More

A good place to hangout. Good scenery and historic temple inside the park is a highlight. It closes at 5.30 pm, so get there before that

This is a very large area of parkland devoted to legendary figure of justice, Bao Zheng. It is in fact part of the old city moat which still surrounds most of Hefei city centre, but expanded into several interconnecting lakes. Willows, Chinese-style humpbacked bridges, small walkways, zig-zag paths, electric and pedal rowboats and pavillions, it is a quintessentially Chinese park,... More

Not all park is worth to visit. When i was here, most of the place is still under renovation or repair. Some of the park which is a waste of time(i bought a 40 Yuan all site ticket). The major place to visit from this Bao Gong Yuan(Bao Gong Park) is to visit the tomb site, family tomb site, and... More

Baogong Park—the most scenic and peaceful place in the city. Hundreds of people came for the usual walks and going around the entire park was really pleasurable. The lake is crystal clear and green in color adorned by artistic pavilions and even has a good view of the city skyline. The park is named after Lord Bao, an official of... More

A quiet refuge in a busy city. The house and gardens gave a good insight into the life of the chinese upper classes in the lates 1800s and early 1900s.
