At the big Square just behind the Tiananmen gate (gate of Heavenly Peace) you can see a collection of big guns.

Probably these guns were used in order to defend the Forbidden City.

Maybe that would have been the advantage if you visit this site with a local guide. Then you can get more local information, on the other hand it was very hot, and then walking around with a guide can be very tiring.
