Beijing, China



The zuihuai (Chinese: 罪槐; pinyin: Zuìhuái; lit. 'guilty pagoda tree') is a specimen of the pagoda tree (Styphnolobium japonicum) located in Jingshan Park, Beijing, China. It is a tourist attraction and national landmark in Jingshan Park. The Chongzhen Emperor, the last ruler of the Ming dynasty, allegedly hanged himself from the tree in 1644 after the imperial capital, Beijing, fell to rebel forces led by Li Zicheng.

The original tree has been replaced numerous times. The current tree is a 150 year old replacement, replanted in 1996.
