Baoguang Chamber

 

 

Baoguang Chamber is the main hall of the third row of courtyard in the Mansion’s west section. Its name derived from the plaque “Baoguang Chamber” inscribed by Emperor Xianfeng. During the periods of Heshen and Prince Qing, it used to be a reception room. According to the List of  Heshen's Assets Confiscated, it is also the place where Heshen hid his 26,000 liang (1.3 million grams) golds that were later confiscated by Emperor Jiaqing. The golds were cleverly hid in the hollow walls of the Chamber. During the period of Prince Kung, the Chamber functioned as a private parlour.
