The Forbidden City

I had a very nice visit to the Forbidden City when I made a trip to Beijing, China this week.
The weather was perfect - cool, blue skies - just fantastic.

Mythical creatures - decorations on the roof of the Hall of Supreme Harmony guard against the evil.

The dragon is the symbol of the emperor.

The longest stone carving behind The Hall of Preserving Harmony.

The Female Lion in front of the Palace of Tranquil Longevity. She plays with the baby.

Series of roofs seen towards north to Jingshan Park.
