Prince Gong"s Residence is the most intact mansion preserved in Beijing. It consists of a mansion and a garden. It occupies 46.5 mu (15 mu = 1 hectare). Since the residence was extremely luxurious when it was firstly built by He Shen, the halls in it followed the style of Palace of Tranquil Longevity in the Forbidden City. Some halls were made of nanmu and combined the features of both mansions and gardens. From the south to the north, the halls are divided into five rows with three groups of courtyards from east to west. At the front of the axis, there are two gates and the second one is larger than the first one. Originally, there stood the main hall named the Yin"an Hall, which has collapsed. The extant Jiale Hall features the style of imperial palaces. The three quadrangles along the eastern line feature Ming Dynasty architecture style.
