The mysterious Forbidden City

Ever since the Qin Empire (221 BC-206 B . C .), the emperors useful to call their palaces as Zigong, which carried the meaning of the residential host to the emperors, pay attention to it in your Forbidden City Tour. Zigong is actually one of the branches of Chinese astrology which is commonly used in Far eastern Lunar Calendar. Zigong is also referred to as Ziheng and Ziweigong which means the overall 15 stars which surround the North Star. The ancient Chinese believe the emperors were God who was dispatched by the Heaven to rule the modern world. Since the North Star is actually remained its position relating to the North and would for no reason moves, so, the Polaris is also named as the Emperor Star, we had known a lot in our Forbidden City Tours. For the same reason, Zigong as the bordering celestial region which it belongs to was used as being the name for the earthly counterpart of the emperor on the globe to highlight the solemn and sacred in the emperors.
The Forbidden City may be divided into two sections which is Qianchao (Front Trial) or Waichao (External Court) at the southern the main palace and the Neiting (Internal Court) or Houqin (Back Palace) at the northern part of the palace. The Southern part of Forbidden City is composed from Taihe Dian (Corridor of Supreme Harmony), Zhonghe Dian (Corridor of Central Harmony) and Baohe Dian (Hall of Preserving Harmony) over the central axis as the major buildings along with the Wenhua Dian (Literary Glory) and Yingwu Dian (Army Eminence) on both sides with the axis. On top of that, the garden on all over these buildings which shows an excellent combination of Chinese standard architecture with long hallway, unique and typical Far eastern roof designs, doors along with the pavilion and towers have all together served as a part of the Qianchao (Entry Court) or Waichao (Outer Court) with the Forbidden City, beijing Forbidden City Tour. The Outer Court of the Forbidden City was the place where the emperors to get ministers and hold court along with the venue where important events were held. The mysterious Forbidden City

Two different places of Beijing

The valley of your Ming Tombs lies concerning 48 kilometers (30 miles) north with Beijing. Thirteen of that 16 Ming emperors are interred here, hence this site’s Chinese name, Ming Shisanling (your 13 Ming Tombs). We chose here to visit after Forbidden City Tour. The tombs were located according to Chinese geomantic specifications requiring graves being protected by high ground.
The approach is impressive. The modern road passes by the stone portico with five carved archways. This is the beginning of imposing route known as being the Spirit (or Holy way). Next comes the great Vermilion Gateway of its three openings the central entrance was reserved for any coffins of deceased emperors, and all followers were required to dismount now. The feeling of this tour was absorlutely different from Forbidden City Tours. The whole tomb web site, to which this gateway was that entrance, was of course surrounded by the wall, now gone.
The Summer Palace is a monument to classical Chinese architecture, in terms of both garden design together with construction. In December 1998, it was eventually inscribed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO, which commented the following:
1) The Summer time Palace in Beijing can be an outstanding expression of that creative art of Far eastern landscape garden design, incorporating the works involving humankind and nature within a harmonious whole;
2) The summertime Palace epitomizes the philosophy and practice of Chinese garden design, which played an important role in the development from this cultural form throughout your east; in my opinion, we should plan to start this tour as soon as end beijing Forbidden City Tour.
3) That imperial Chinese garden, illustrated by the Summer Palace, can be a potent symbol of one of many major world civilizations.
At the present time, the summertime Palace has become one of many top famous tourist attractions in Beijing and The far east. Two different places of Beijing
