The Royal Library
Walk to the Hall of Literary Profundity, and view the royal library, built for the emperor 300 years ago. Since yellow is the symbol of the royal family, it is the dominant color in the Forbidden City. However, the roof of the Royal Library is black. The reason is that it was believed black represented water then and could extinguish fire.

Hall of Supreme Harmony
Back to the Central Axis Way, you will see a grand square in front of the Hall of Supreme Harmony, which is one of the three main halls of the Forbidden City. It was formerly used on such occasions as a new emperor's accession, the emperor's birthday and the announcement of important edicts. Our tour guide is ready to answer all your questions to satisfy your curiosity.

High stone slab

Hall of Heavenly Purity and the Hall of Earthly Tranquility
The Hall of Heavenly Purity was the palace where the emperors used to live and handle daily affairs in the Ming and early Qing Dynasties. The Palace of Earthly Tranquility was where the empress lived in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). However, after reconstruction in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), it served as the nuptial chamber of the emperor and empress and the altar for worshiping the deities of Shamanism.

Hall of Mental Cultivation

Your next stop is the Hall of Mental Cultivation, where you can see the screen that was between the throne of "the Little Emperor" and his mother "the Dragon Lady".
