Entering the beautiful park, walking through the stone gate and along the small path by the lake, you will find it in front of you. It is a typical compound with houses around a courtyard. There is a incense burner donated by a pilgrim standing in the yard. The main palace with five halls is the highlight of it.
In the center of the palace is a huge seated statue of Bao Zheng, measuring about nine feet. He is holding a scepter in one hand and a pen in the other. The dignified, serious expression on his face represents his impartial and incorruptible moral character. Four bodyguards stand on two sides of him. Instruments of torture, which are recognized as symbols of justice are on the left of the statue. A stone portrait of Bao Zheng is inlayed in the right wall of the hall. In the eastern and western halls display items related to him.
There is an inscription stone in it which was found in the tomb of Bao Zheng in Daxingji County, Hefei City in April, 1973. This inscription stone records detailed information of Bao's whole life that is helpful for a further understanding of him.
The sites of the newly built Waxwork Museum and Cultural Gallery of Lord Bao deserve your visit as well.
