25 Autumn Pavilion at Forbidden City in Beijing, China

On the east side of the garden is the Autumn Pavilion. Qianqiuting has the identical design of the Springtime Pavilion. Both structures have a multifaceted base representing the earth with a conical roof symbolizing heaven. Near the top is a glazed pot with a colorful bas-relief of mythical creatures flanked by two dragon sculptures. These pavilions were created during the early 15th century and then rebuilt in 1535.
