Beijing Hot Spots The Palace Museum The Palace Museum was commissioned by the third Emperor of the Ming Dynasty, Emperor Yong Le. The palace was built between 1406 and 1420, but was burnt down, rebuilt, sacked and renovated countless times, so most of the architecture you can see today dates from the 1700’s and onwards. The Forbidden City was the seat of Imperial power for 500 years, and is now a major tourist attraction in China. The total area of the complex is 183 acres, so it takes quite a while to walk through, especially if you want to have a close look at everything. All together there are 9,999 1/2 rooms in the Museum. The Temple of Heaven

The Temple of Heaven was initially built in the  eighteenth year of the Ming Dynasty (in 1420). Situated in the southern part  of the city, it covers an area of 273 hectares. It is a place where Emperors  from both the Ming and Qing Dynasties’ traveled to worship and to pray for  good harvest. The northern part of the Temple is round in contrast to the  southern part, which is square, implying that “the sky is round and the  earth is square” to symbolize both heaven and earth. There are a lot of  prominent places in this park such as the Circular Mound Altar, the Imperial  Vault of Heaven, the Long Corridor, the Echo Wall, the Seven-Star Stone and  many other areas of historic interest and panoramic beauty. In 1998, it was  included in the “List of World Heritages” by the United Nation’s  Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

The Summer Palace

The history of Summer Palace extends as far back as  800 years. In 115 B.C, when the Jin Dynasty made Beijing–then called  Yanjing– its capital, it built an imperial palace that was then referred to  as the Golden Hill Palace. The structure still remains on the present site of  what residents and tourists both recognize as the Summer Palace of Beijing.  With great reflections and a beautiful scenery of endless tales, Summer  Palace remains to be one of the most widely visited places in Beijing. It is  likely to grow in popularity as a scenic spot as the next decade brings more  and more travelers into Beijing for both sight-seeing and a cultural  appreciation for historic landmarks.

The Great Wall

The Great Wall at Badaling is located in Yanqing County, which is about  60 kilometers northwest of Beijing. It is widely known as the most  representative section of the “Great Wall” from the Ming Dynasty. Well laid  out with huge uniform bricks, the wall was built on the ridges of the  mountains. Various beacon towers were erected at strategic points along the  wall. Badaling is a place of strategic importance and its wall is both tall  and sturdy. With its many beacon towers, the wall looks magnificent and best  epitomizes the magnificence of traditional Chinese architecture.
