The Renshoudian Temple was built during Emperor 乾隆Qianlong's reign(1736-95) and was named 勤政殿Qinzhengdian Temple. It was renamed later to 仁寿殿Renshoudian Temple after major renovations in 1890,so named in hope that the Empress Dowager 慈禧Cixi may live a long life. The Dowager and the emperor often held court here.
