The Forbidden City, now also named as The Palace of Museum, was the place where the emperors of Chinese last dynasty lived. It has been through the blood and ashes of wars and still has myriads of mysteries and legends waiting to be told. Every single day, thousands of tourists from all over the world come to this place, only curious to see what it really looks like and how the "son of god" lived and governed this old big country from there. I feel the heavy sense of the history just standing in front of these old structures, deeply moved and astonished by its amazing delicacy. The frames below cannot jump out of the definition that they came out of a tourist's eyes, but indeed they also serve as a copy of documentation of the historical palace in this modern century. Considering the awful smog pollution in Beijing recently, these structures are facing more and more severe maintenance issues than ever before. I wish the Forbidden City could always stand still and never fell apart in the current of history.
