Turret of The Palace Museum, Beijing

4.5
#33 of 324 in Sightseeing in Beijing
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
Admire the workmanship and history of Turret of The Palace Museum, the impressive corner towers of the ancient palace, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built along with the rest of the palace between 1406 and 1420, the towers display intricate ridged roofs, bold coloration, and an imposing scale. The best view of the turrets comes from the other side of the moat. This was the predominant view of the palace afforded to the majority of residents in the city, and as such the turrets have been the source of much mythologizing over the years. Put Turret of The Palace Museum into our Beijing holiday planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Beijing.
