Our 2008 China Eclipse Trip - Page 1

Forbidden City

We will visit the Forbidden City. Within the Meridian Gate there is a square courtyard. Across the courtyard runs the Golden Water Stream, over which there are five bridges. The marble balustrades of the bridges and lining the river the river form a beautiful jade-like belt. To the north of the bridges is the imposing Tai Ho Men (Gate of Supreme Harmony), which was rebuilt in 1646 (3rd year of Ching Emperor Shin Chih's reign).
