The Hall of great Harmony i must confess is the most majestic building at the Forbidden city complex. A walk around the building will make you understand the size of it and get closer to take a look at the inside.

We went there with friends to see what the emperor has been up to. It is a vast complex of 1000 * 750 meters, with 8000 rooms. They started building 1400 BC !

Seeing pictures of the Hall of Great Harmony are nothing compared to seeing it in person - we could have easily spent more time here as it is huge - but we where on a tour - a must do

I'm not sure about closure of Forbidden City. Probably during major holidays like Chinese New Year. As for Tiananmen Square, it's like an open park so you can visit anytime. However, the surrounding attractions like Mao's... More
