This park offers the best view of the Forbidden City that you can possibly find.
The hill was acctually built from the earth that was removed when they dug out the moat for the palace.
But the view is not limited to the palace, you get a superb panorama over the whole city once you've climbed your way to the top.

On the east side of the hill you can find the locust tree where the last of the Ming emperors hung himself when the city was overrun by rebels.

And below the hill there are a small garden with benches to relax weary feet and maby write a postcard or two.
