At the north end of the Square is Tiananmen Tower. Initially built in 1417 during the Ming Dynasty, the Square was the front door of the Forbidden City. The granite Monument to the People's Heroes is just at the centre of the Tiananmen Square.
Forbidden City: The legendary Forbidden City was the Chinese imperial palace from the mid-Ming Dynasty to the end of the Qing Dynasty. Today it is known as the Imperial Palace Museum. The buildings of the Forbidden City embody the artistic features and style of ancient Chinese palace architecture, and are called a masterpiece in Chinese architectural history. The Palace Museum has some one million precious historical relics from the Shang Dynasty through to the Qing Dynasty.
Stop for a substantial lunch in a local restaurant.
The Temple of Heaven: The Temple of Heaven (Tian Tan) in the southern part of Beijing is China's largest existing complex of ancient sacrificial buildings.
