The Dragon Pavilion in Kaifeng was originally a part of the palace of the Jin Dynasty and then submerged by flood. In the 31st year under the reign of Emperor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty (1692), the Wanshou (longevity) Pavilion was set up here to lay the memorial tablets of the emperors and began to be called "the Dragon Pavilion". The present Dragon Pavilion was the audience hall of the Wanshou palace then.
