    Forbidden City

    More

            Upon the establishment of the Ming Dynasty, the Hongwu Emperor moved the capital from Beijing in the north to Nanjing in the south, and ordered to burn down the Yuan palaces. When his son Zhu Di became the Yongle Emperor, he moved the capital back to Beijing, and the construction of Forbidden City began in 1406. The construction lasted 15 years, and required more than a million workers. Material used include whole logs of precious Phoebe zhennan wood found in the jungles of south-western China, and large blocks of marble from quarries near Beijing. The floors of major halls were paved with "golden bricks".

      The Forbidden City, situated in the very heart of Beijing, was home to 24 emperors of the Ming (1368–1644) and Qing (1644–1911) Dynasties. In ancient times, the emperor claimed to be the son of Heaven, and therefore Heaven’s supreme power was bestowed upon him. The emperors' residence on earth was built as a replica of the "Purple Palace where God was thought to live in Heaven". Such a divine place was certainly forbidden to ordinary people and that is why the Forbidden City is so named.

    Forbidden City.jpg     Forbidden City.jpg  

       The Forbidden City is the world's largest surviving palace complex and covers 72 hectare . It is a 961 meters from north to south and 753 meters from east to west. It consists of 980 surviving buildings with 8,707 rooms. The Forbidden City was designed to be the centre of the ancient Beijing. It is enclosed in a larger, walled area called the Imperial City. The Imperial City is, in turn, enclosed by the Inner City; to its south lays the Outer City.

    Tiananmen Square

    More

      The Tiananmen Square on the north to south axis is at the center of Beijing city. It's the largest square in the world, encompassing an area of 14 hectares, and measuring 865 meters north to south, and 500 and 370 meters east to west on the northern and southern ends respectively.

          The Five-Star Red Flag flutters high above the mid-point of the square's north side. Everyday,  at dawn and dusk, the Guards march in unison to the foot of the flagstaff to hoist or lower the National Flag, saluted with eyes by the on-lookers.

    Tiananmen Square

      The Monument to the People's Heroes towers over the center of the square. To its south lies Chairman Mao's Memorial Hall. The Chinese Revolutionary Museum and the Chinese History Museum stand to the east of the square, the Great Hall of the People to the west and the magnificent Heavenly Peace Gate Tower to the north. The Tower is adjoined on its left side by the Zhongshan Park and on the right side by the Working People's Palace of Culture. Opposite the tower in the far south is the Zhengyang Gate Tower. These fine and unique buildings arranged in perfect harmony add greater beauty and grandeur to the Tianmen Square.

      The Tiananmen Square is the people's square, where grand state ceremonies are held on important occasions.

    Temple of Heaven

    More

          The Temple of  Heaven is located in the Chongwen district in the southern part of  Beijing. It was built in 1420 during  a time when many other important buildings were constructed in Beijing. Tiantan served as a place of ceremonies and rituals for the Ming and Qing emperors.

      The Palace of  Abstinence is located near the western entrance of the temple. Before each  ceremony, emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties held a three-day fasting period during  summer and winter festivals. The emperors spent two days fasting in the Forbidden City and completed the last day of fasting in the Palace of Abstinence.

      South of the  Echo wall stands the Altar of Heaven, built entirely of white marble. The altar  has four entrances and a flight of nine steps leading down in every direction.  At the center of the upper terrace lies a round stone surrounded by nine  concentric rings of stones.

    Temple of Heaven  

    Even the numbers  of the carved balustrades on these terraces are also multiples of nine. When you  stand in the center of the upper terrace and speak in a low voice, your voice  will echo back much louder to yourself than to others, as the sound waves are  reflected back by the marble balustrades to the focal point at the center.

      The main  building in the compound is the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests. The entire  structure was joint by wooden bars, laths and brackets, without using steel and  concrete. The four large pillars in the center are known as the Dragon Well  Pillars with each pillar representing one of the four seasons.

    Temple of Heaven tour experience the sacred past of the capital

    Temple of Heaven is a place of worshipping for Ming and Qing emperors.

    Take a tour to explore the hall of prayer, the dragon walls and the stunning greenery around the temple. Enjoy the play of colors and of number 9. Book your tour to learn more!

An octagonal pavilion stands at one end of the bridge and near the pavilion lies a bronze ox with its head raised toward the lake. On the back of the ox is engraved a line from Emperor Qianlong stating that the ox is used to control flooding of the lake.

      A Ming-style street winds along a stretch of water on the back side of Longevity Hill. The Suzhou Street, 300 meters long, is lined with more than 60 shops and decorated with archways and gateways. The shops, of different shapes and sizes, are built with bluish gray tiles and bricks.
