Hordes of tourists throng the Palace Museum aka the Forbidden City (Gugong Bowuyuan) daily to walk in the footsteps of some 24 emperors of China's past dynasties.

The Imperial Garden is at the end of the Palace Museum at Tian An Men. Of interest here are the rocky towers and the cypress trees that have stood the test of time.


The entrance to the walls of Tian An Men, under Mao Zedong's ever watchful eyes.

Two policemen keeping an eye (or rather four eyes) over the whole courtyard of Tian An Men.


A big crowd is always present to watch the unfurling of the flag at Tian An Men Square every evening at sunset.

The Sun Yat-Sen Park is just next to Tian An Men. Good place to rest your legs after your visit to the Forbidden City. Next page
