"A stairway behind one of the gateways" Forbidden City - The Palace Museum Tip by shivan
Forbidden City - The Palace Museum, Beijing: 475 reviews and 998 photos
The inner gateways are not at "street level".
There is a stairway climbing before passing the gate and another stairway descending after the gate.
See the three doors?
Well, only the Emperor was authorized (by himself, obviously) to pass through the central door, even the Empress, and all the others, must pass through the side doors.
Address: North of Tiananmen Square
