Inhalt

This lecture focuses on the most well-known hot spring resorts in China, Huaqing Hot Springs Palace, and its surrounding landscape in the suburb of Xi'an during the nineteenth and early twentieth century. It will first illustrate the process of its transformation from imperial palace into a local prefecture garden before the late nineteenth century. In the early twentieth century, Huaqing Hot Springs Palace, Mount Li and the surrounding landscape were recognized and reconstructed as a landscape maintenance district during the urban planning of the "Western Capital". This lecture will reveal how diverse perceptions and activities connected to the hot spring resorts, forest park and historical relics have been developed in both conflict and interaction with various social communities during the early twentieth century.
