Suzhou Longevity Palace was originally built under the order of a procurator in 1717 and it was surrounded by a stream called Yudai (The Bell of Jade). Inside, there is an oblation stele for blessing longevity of China's emperor. On the day of the emperor's birthday, all the officials in Suzhou would gather to attend the solemn celebration ceremony. When the emperor died, a sorrowful memorial ritual would be held and officials would wear the willow to mourn.
