The British tutor Sir Reginald Johnston gave English lessons to the abdicated emperor Pu Yi (1905-1963) in this hall. With its secluded and beautiful surroundings, the lodge was traditionally a place of repose and study. The Emperor Jiaqing (r. 1796-1820) and Daoguang (r. 1821-1850) often came here to rest or read.
  Built in the Ming dynasty (1368-1644) this two-storied building complements the Belvedere of Crimson Snow (Jiangxue xuan) on the eastside of the imperial garden.
