Forbidden City
From 1416 to 1911, this was the imperial palace, home to 24 Ming and Qing dynasty emperors and their families and staff. In 1912, after the abdication of Puyi, the last emperor of China, the Outer Court opened to the public; in 1925 the Palace Museum was opened, with a collection of nearly 1 million Chinese antiquities. The Forbidden City has nearly 1,000 buildings spread across 72 hectares (178 acres), making it the world's largest palace complex.
