The Forbidden City is located on city center in Beijing. It is the former Imperial Palace, from twenty-four emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasties ruled China for almost 500 years. It served as the home of emperors and their households, as well as the ceremonial and political center of Chinese government. Now the 'City' is no longer forbidding, but inviting. A visit to the Palace will enrich the visitors' knowledge of history, economy, politics, arts as well as architecture in ancient China.
Painting this scene from Forbidden City is very joyful practice to express the respect to the ancient creativity.
Please enjoy some of the photos of the Forbidden City from my trip:
