    Hall of Supreme harmony, and pass through the gate on the front looks. China's forbidden city built in the model, here morning such as the Emperor's coronation ceremony was done was so. I'm at that time, women could not Empress even never go. Is a majestic building of the one-story, surprising and a sober impression. It was pretty lit up at night.

    Many palaces in the citadel are damaged. However, this palace is in a good condition. I am not sure whether it is restored or not. Very easy to find as you enter the main gate for ticket checking.  more »
