After the Qing Dynasty moved its capital to Beijing in 1644, the Shenyang Palace was preserved and continued to expanded. From 1671 to 1829 the Qing emperors including KangXi, QinLong, Jiaqing and Daoguang all stay in the palace during their visit and offer sacrifices to their ancestor ceremonies and held celebrations.
