The Forbidden City（Gu Gong）
The Forbidden City, formally known as the PalaceMuseum, is located in the exact center of Beijing. It is the base around which all of Beijinghas since evolved. The building was completed in the early 15th century, and it served as an imperial palace for the emperors of Ming and Qing Dynasties, ruling over china for nearly 500 years. The museum boasts many ancient artifacts, art pieces and priceless antiques. Popularly known as the venue for the film "The Last Emperor", this is a must-see cultural highlight for any visit to Beijing.
Tiananmen Square (Tiananmen Guang Chang)
Directly to the south of The Forbidden City lies Tiananmen Square. This famous square houses The Great Hall of the People and is the final resting place of Chairman Mao Zedong, of which a huge portrait hangs at the entrance to The Forbidden City, keeping watch over Tiananmen Square. It was also in this square that Chairman Mao Zedong made his 1949 speech proclaiming the founding of the PeoplesRepublic of China.
Temple of Heaven (Tian Tan)
Once reserved for the worship of Heaven and Earth by the Ming and Qing Emperors (1420-1911), the Temple of Heaven is one of Beijing’s most impressive parks.

It is known as the largest group of existing imperial temple buildings in China and represents the calm, spiritual side of Chinese history.
