The Imperial Prospect Pavilion stands tall and erect on the Mountain of Accumulated Elegance (Duixiu shan) in the north of the Imperial Garden (Yu huayuan). It is considered as the best location overlooking the Forbidden City. The ceilings of the pavilion are decorated with caissons. Inside the pavilion furnishes a south-facing throne and outside a stone altar. The emperor and empress would ascend the Imperial Prospect Pavilion on the Double Ninth Festival (ninth day of the ninth lunar month, a festival especially for climbing mountains).
