One of the most renowned attractions in the People’s Republic of China, the Forbidden City traces its history back nearly 700 years.

From 1421 until 1911, this structure consisting of 9,000 rooms served as the home to the royal family of China.
Along with hundreds of buildings, terraces, and courtyards, the Forbidden City features the Wumen Gate, also known as the Meridian Gate. Completed in 1420 and standing 36 meters tall, this entrance to the city fulfilled numerous purposes throughout its history. Among the many ceremonies that took place there, generals presented prisoners to the emperor and people celebrated the New Year. Today, the Forbidden City functions as a museum containing permanent exhibitions representing the Ming and Qing dynasties and traveling exhibitions from some of the world’s top cultural institutions.
