Officially termed the Palace Museum (Gugong), he Forbidden City served for 500 years (until the end of the imperial era in 1911) as the source of all power in China, the throne of the Son of Heaven and the private residence of all the Ming and Qing dynasty emperors. Covering 74 hectares and containing some 800 individual buildings, the scale of the Forbidden City is hard to grasp, but visiting this monumental complex is an extraordinary experience.
