< 1 >

The Hall of Esteem (Chongjing dian) is located in the area west of the Gate of a Thousand Infants (Baizi men) and south of the Palace of Many Splendors (Chonghua gong). The hall is five bays wide and three deep with glazed yellow tiles covering a hip and gable roof. The front of the hall has a three-bay wide portico added after the original construction. The door has four leaves fashioned with lattice panels in the ancient-coin pattern. Originally called the Hall of Jubilant Uprightness (Leshan tang), it served as the residence of the Qianlong Emperor (r. 1736–1795) while he was still a prince. The interior still bears a plaque with the original name. The hall was expanded in the fifth year (1740) of the Qianlong reign.
