The Forbidden City in my memory

I was born in Beijing, grew up in Beijing, never even left Beijing for more than a month before I came to Israel. For me, Beijing is a place I called home. Or where I store all my memory. For me the most unforgettable place in Beijing is the Forbidden City.

The Forbidden City was the Chinese imperial palace from the Ming dynasty to the end of the Qing dynasty. It is located in the center of Beijing, China, and now houses the Palace Museum. It served as the home of emperors and their households as well as the ceremonial and political center of Chinese government for almost 500 years.

This is a view you could enjoy from the JingShan Park. You could see the whole view of the Forbidden city. (Of course, you need a day without air pollution.)


This is the Corner Tower in the Forbidden City. In my childhood, my father used to bring me here. He said that in this place, you could know the greatness of China’s history.

If you decide to go to China, don’t forget to come to Beijing. If you go to Beijing, don’t forget to visit the Forbidden City. To see the reminder of Chinese history.
