Pavilions, seen everywhere in the vast land of China, are small building closely connected with people's lives in sightseeing and leisure. Pavilions have many functions and different artistic shapes, and they have become an integral feature of both natural scenic spots and man-made parks or gardens. In China, they are so ubiquitous that it is said, "There is no famous mountain without a pavilion," "no rivers or lakes without pavilions," and "no parks or gardens without pavilions." In a park or garden, other building might be dispensable, but not pavilions. So, from ancient times to today, pavilions have been associated with parks or gardens.
