North of the Forbidden City is Jingshang Park. From the Pavillon of Eternal Peace you have a wonderful view over the Palace. This Park had been an Imperial Garden during Ming and Qing Dynasty. Later people used to store coal there. That is why this park is also called Coal Hill.

One famous incident took place here in 1644, when Emperor Chongzhen killed himself being afraid of some rebells.

This is a very good place to watch people doing their Tai Ji exercise or dance or dooing something else for their health.

Address: North of Forbidden City
Directions: The park is located at the North of the Imperial Palace, when you leave the palace through the North Gate you just cross the street and you are in Jingshan Park.
The park is open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
