    The Forbidden City was home to the Imperial people. Imperial means “royal” so all of the royal guards and the emperor and the emperors servants would all live in this Forbidden City. The Forbidden City was called that because only the royals could go in and to the “peasants” (normal people) it was forbidden to enter. The Forbidden City had rooms for their soldiers and their servants so if you could see how many soldiers China had, the amount of rooms would be massive.
    The Forbidden City is located in the middle of Beijing.

    The Forbidden City is in the centre of Beijing and has 10 metre high walls. It has roughly 9000 rooms and can hold over 100,000 people. It got it’s name because when it was built it was forbidden for anyone besides royals and VIP’s to enter. It was home to 24 emperors. It was completed in 1420 and parts of it has been rebuilt many times.

    The Forbidden City was the Chinese imperial palace from the Ming Dynasty to the end of the Qing Dynasty. It is located in the middle of Beijing, China, and now houses the Palace Museum. For almost 500 years, it served as the home of emperors and their households, as well as the ceremonial and political center of Chinese government.

    Built in 1406 to 1420, the complex consists of 980 buildings and covers 720,000 m2 (7,800,000 sq ft).[1] The palace complex exemplifies traditional Chinese palatial architecture,[2] and has influenced cultural and architectural developments in East Asia and elsewhere. The Forbidden City was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987,[2] and is listed by UNESCO as the largest collection of preserved ancient wooden structures in the world.

    Since 1925, the Forbidden City has been under the charge of the Palace Museum, whose extensive collection of artwork and artifacts were built upon the imperial collections of the Ming and Qing dynasties. Part of the museum’s former collection is now located in the National Palace Museum in Taipei. Both museums descend from the same institution, but were split after the Chinese Civil War.
