(4.3/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
When visiting the Forbidden City, stop by and admire The Nine Dragon Screen of The Palace Museum, the most famous example of the traditional Chinese wall relief that features nine different dragons. The wall dates back to 1773, and stands at 3.5 m (11.5 ft) tall, with a length of 20m (67 ft). A symbol of luck, power, and magnificence, each of the dragons on the wall is considered to have a distinct character and unique traits.
