"A side gate" Forbidden City - The Palace Museum Tip by shivan

  side view of the inner Forbidden City
by shivan

An unusual view here.

Right of this gate there is a very large pot.

It was once, said the guide, a golden pot (and it is enormous).

The pot appears heavily scarred because invaders from Japan (if I remember correctly) scratched away the gold with weapons.

Whoever is guilty, is a barbarian.

This is the last pic of the Forbidden City at the moment, whenever I scan some more (I must find them before) I'll update this page.
