Ang Forbidden City (literal na Pinagbabawalang Lungsod) ay ang dating palasyong imperyal ng Tsina mula noong Dinastiyang Ming hanggang katapusan ng Dinastiyang Qing. Matatagpuan ito sa sentro ng Beijing, Tsina, at dito ngayon matatagpuan ang Palace Museum. Sa loob halos ng 500 taon, nagsilbi itong tahahan ng mga emperador at ng kasambahayan nito, pati na rin ng seremonyal at politikal na sentro ng pamahalaang Tsino.

Itinayo noong 1406 hanggang 1420, ang kompleks ay binubuo ng 980 gusali at sumasakop sa lawak na 72 ha. Ipinapakita ng kompleks ng palasyo ang tradisyonal na arkitekturang pampalasyo ng Tsina, na nakaimpluwensiya sa pag-unlad ng kultura at arkitektura sa Silangang Asya ay kung saan-saan pa. Idineklarang Pandaigdigang Pamanang Pook ang Forbidden City noong 1987, at itinalâ ng UNESCO na naglalaman ng pinakamalaking koleksiyon ng napreserbang istrakturang kahoy sa buong daigdig.

Mula 1925, nasa ilalim ng pamamahala ng Palace Museum ang Forbidden City, na may malawak na koleksiyon ng mga likhang-sining at artifact na nanggaling sa koleksiyon ng imperyo sa ilalim ng dinastiyang Ming at Qing. Ilan sa mga dating koleksiyon ng museo ay makikita na sa National Palace Museum sa Taipei. Nagmula sa iisang institusyon ang parehong museo, ngunit nahati matapos ang Digmaang Sibil Tsino.

My tip goes for the families with kids. The forbidden city is not exactly stroller friendly but it is doable with a lightweight stroller. Buy tickets in advance and bring snacks for your little ones.

Nice place to visit for sightseeing! If you buy the ticket by your hotel concierg, no need to wait in the quo for the ticket printing. Go ahead to an office called invoice booking and go ahead

For nearly 500 years, the emperors living within Beijing’s opulent Forbidden City dictated who could enter and leave. Well, the gates have opened, and tourists are pouring in to see it for themselves.

14 years & over 1 million skilled laborers to complete the center of the universe (as far as the Emperors were concerned). Officially occupied in 1420, it went on to house 24 emperors over 500 years!
