History of the Forbidden City

In 1368 the Yuan dynasty was replaced by the Ming dynasty. The emperor was proud of the ming history so proud that he ordered new buildings to be built in Beijing. This is how the amazing Forbidden city came to be. The only people allowed in the forbidden city were the emperor, his family, servants, guards, and government officials. They made sure of this by surrounding the city with walls. Inside the walls were three stately halls that different emperors used for government and religious ceremonies. When it came time for the looks it truly didn't disappoint, this city was fit for an emperor. From gold fish swimming in streams to peacocks roaming the city. Art included carved dragons and of course statues of the emperor himself. There was no doubt that this city was perfect for an emperor.
