The least impressive of all the halls within the forbidden city. There are some 8700 odd rooms within the city. Many of the imperial rooms are in this area. Stone carved fencing leads you to this square.

This hall was also known as Hall of Ultimate Principle or Hall of Supreme Being. The hall served as a residence for one of many Imperial concubines. The concubine of the last Emperor, Pu Yi, was also housed here.

This Hall was fine but it was, at least to me, less impressive than most of the other buildings, gates, halls, etc. in the Forbidden City. Check it out but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

The bridge of the stone carving is very impressive and beautiful. Keep in mind! You are not allowed to walk on the carving. The color of the pillars of the walls contrasts well with the stone bridge. It's very picturesque. Worth visiting.
