The magnificent and transcendent Forbidden City
Touring the ancient palace, a dazzling culmination of Chinese traditional culture
Located in the heart of Beijing, the Palace Museum was established on the basis of the Forbidden City, where emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties lived and carried out their politics. This work uses virtual reality to recreate the Forbidden City at the height of the Qing dynasty. The tour will take you to three palaces: the Hall of Supreme Harmony, a magnificent ceremonial space; the Hall of Mental Cultivation, the site of the emperor’s political affairs and daily life; and the Studio of Exhaustion from Diligent Service, which shaped the ideals of the Qianlong Emperor who helped establish the dynasty’s golden age. This tour explores the charm of the Forbidden City, an enduring culmination of Chinese traditional culture and the historic setting for the successive generations of emperors who lived there.
