  • Do not miss these. They are right at the end of the complex and are stunning in their simplicity and beauty. A fabulous finish to a wonderful experience in the forbidden city. 
  • The garden is located inside of Forbidden city. Beautiful place for king wife or mistress. There are ancient trees 
  • A garden full of trees and volcanic rocks from the most varied forms. Awesome to see.
