Forbidden City - Beijing, China - Photo

One of the striking things about the Forbidden City in Beijing is the size of it. This is but one of a number of courtyards in the official section of the city. In the place where the emperor would receive officials the spaces are large and intimidating. Surpassingly, in the private section of the city where the emperor would live his bedroom was no larger than my own.
