In 1926 a fire set by the Northern Warlords (1912-1927) again burnt it down. Reconstruction of the pavilion began in 1983, and was completed in 1989. Occupying an area of 43,000 square metres, the main structure of the pavilion covers 13,000 square metres. With double eaves, the pavilion boasts nine storeys, with a height of 57.5 metres.
