The gateway to the Forbidden City

Te gateway to the Forbidden City

The ‘Forbidden City’ in Beijing is the Chinese imperial palace that was home to the emperors of China for almost 500 years. With close to 1000 buildings within the complex in the heart of the city, the scale is breathtaking.

Unfortunately, the smog in modern day Beijing means that any pictures are of fuzzy quality.
