Dragon Pavilion

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
The Dragon Pavilion is located in the northwestern part of the Kaifeng city. The Dragon Pavilion, formerly named Longevity Pavilion, was built in 1692, on the site of the former mansion of a Ming dynasty prince. The most striking architectural feature of this pavilion is the stone staircases with blue stone centers, carved with traditional dragons. The Great Hall is elevated on a 13 meter high brick platform from where visitors can enjoy stunning views of the nearby Pan and Yang Lakes. The pavilion also houses a tablet honoring the emperor and in imperial times, officials, soldiers and civilians would come to pay their respects. Inside the pavilion, there is also a wax figure museum bringing to life stories from the Northern Song period.
The Dragon Pavilion, justifiably so, enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers, and is one of the most visited place in the Kaifeng city.
