  Inside Hall of Preseved harmony
by clairegeordio

This is one of the Forbidden City’s great halls. It was built in 1420 and was renovated in 1765 after having already been rebuilt. In the early days of the Ming dynasty banquets were held here, and later during the 18th Century it was used for examinations where Emperors would read papers regarding the top ten candidates to honor them.
