A ceremony was held earlier this month to mark the inauguration of a museum containing the remains of a royal palace dating back to the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279) in Hangzhou, East China's Zhejiang province. The museum containing Deshou Palace, or the Palace of Morals and Longevity, covers approximately 21,000 square meters. The remains were discovered in the 1980s. Finds included large palace foundations, brick roads, rock garden foundations and drainage facilities.
