Caption: The class hall of Piyong, Imperial College (Guozijian) in Beijing. The class hall of Piyong is the representative architecture of Guozijian. The Imperial College is located just to the west of the Confucian Temple and is recognized as the highest official institution of learning Iit was first established in 1287 during the Yuan Dynasty and subsequently enlarged several times, attaining its present dimensions during the reign of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty. After the founding of the People's Republic in 1949, the Imperial College was completely renovated and the Capital Library was incorporated within its grounds. The east and west auxiliary halls of the Piyong Hall originally housed the Qianlong Stone Scriptures. In the middle of the 18th century, Emperor Qianlong ordered to have the Thirteen Classics engraved in stone. To carry out this order, Jiang Heng, a scholar from Jiangsu Province, spent 20 years carving the 630,000 Chinese characters onto 189 stone tablets. Today these tables are located to the east of the Taixue Gate.
