After the Taiping took over Nánjīng, they built the Mansion of the Heavenly King (天王府; Tiānwáng Fǔ) on the foundations of a former Ming-dynasty palace. This magnificent palace did not survive the fall of the Taiping, but there is a reconstruction and a classical Ming garden, now known as the Presidential Palace. Other buildings on the site were used briefly as presidential offices by Sun Yatsen’s government in 1912 and by the Kuomintang from 1927 to 1949.
