Inspired by Chinese Embroidery Yuehua flower uses the pure white color of  inspirations of Peonies represent beauty, elegance, grace, prosperity, and strength In ancient China, because of its beauty and elegance, peonies were grown only in the royal gardens of the Emperor. In the Tang Dynasty, a woman named Wu Zhe Tian became the empress. She wanted to see some beautiful peonies but it was during the bitter coldness of winter. She ordered the flowers to blossom in cold weather but the peony refused to yield to her command. Empress Wu was so displeased that she kicked out all peonies from the royal palace. After they were exiled, peonies found a home in Luoyang, a city in the Henan province of China. The peonies flourished in Luoyang’s soil and weather. They grew even more beautiful and prosperous. The peony has always been referred to as the queen of flowers. 

Yuehua Qiao paints peonies because it is the prized flower of her city. She often takes walks in the famed peony gardens of Luoyang with her son. The spirit of the peony inspires Yuehua to be strong and to hold on to hope.

The Forbidden City 100 Excellent Books  is one  is “The Forbidden City 100″ is a work carefully created by Mr. Zhao Guangchao, his design, cultural team and the cultural research and development team of the Forbidden City for many years. This book can firstly understand the six hundred years more of history of the Forbidden City. During the Ming and Qing dynasties, a total of 24 emperors lived, lived and exercised the highest state power here. In 1911, the Qing emperor abdicated. In 1913, the Antiquities Exhibition was built in the Forbidden City. In 1924, Puyi left the palace. In 1925, the Palace Museum was established.

One Hundred Excellent Books in the Forbidden City The Ming Empire initially chose Fengyang as the capital, and then settled in Nanjing (1368). When Zhu Di, the third emperor of the Ming Dynasty, had just ascended the throne (1406 in the fourth year of Shui Le), he dispatched the imperial court to China. The officers collected building materials from all over the country, distributed 100,000 craftsmen, more than one million people, and built the Forbidden City in Beijing on a larger scale on the former site of the palace in the Yuan Dynasty, based on the Nanjing Palace City. In the eighteenth year of Yongle’s reign (1420), the palace city was completed, and Zhu Di immediately moved the capital from Nanjing to his own land of Longxing, and Peiping became the largest city in the country (and the world at that time) from the beginning.

The newly built Miyagi moved about 1,000 meters eastward from the ruins of the Forbidden City in the Yuan Dynasty, and moving away from today’s Beihai Park means to some extent from the Yuan people’s customs of “living by water and grass”, back to the stable farming in the Han culture. on the pattern. The new palace pushes the fate of the Yuan people’s annihilation to the position of the white tiger killed by the main Tibetan in the five elements in the west, and then uses the building materials left over from the construction of the palace, together with the soil for excavating the moat, to build a hill behind the palace (Jingshan Mountain). ), creating a barrier against the cold north wind for the originally flat Miyagi, becoming the commanding height of the Forbidden City and even the city of Beijing at that time, and also the backing of Wanshi Foundation.

“Forbidden City 100” entered the Forbidden City. Jingren Palace is one of the six east palaces that everyone is familiar with, and it retains a relatively complete appearance of the Ming Dynasty. In the early Ming Dynasty, it was called Chang’an Palace and was renamed Jingren Palace in Jiajing. The Qing Dynasty followed the old name of the Ming Dynasty. The most special feature of Jingren Palace is that there is a stone screen in the front yard that was passed down from the Yuan Dynasty (the symmetrical Yongshou Palace also has the same stone screen). Although the center of the screen is only about 2 cm thick, the patterns on both sides are different. In addition, the shape of the seated beast on Shiping is very rare in the palace, and it is exquisite and vivid. “Animal style” has existed in China since ancient times. The beauty of masonry in the Yuan and Ming dynasties and the concise style of the Qing Dynasty are placed in the same space. All of a sudden, this palace seems to have become a history of modern Chinese sculpture, and it even evokes the legendary antecedents of the masters who once lived here. Here, it was originally the birthplace of Emperor Kangxi in the early Qing Dynasty, and the palace of the legendary concubine Zhen in the late Qing Dynasty… The

owner of the Ming Dynasty: Empress Hu (Hu Shanxiang) of Xuanzong of the Ming Dynasty. Emperor Xuande favored concubine Sun Gui and Cricket, and ordered Empress Hu to resign on the grounds of “no children and many illnesses”, and placed them in Chang’an Palace (Jingren Palace) to practice Taoism, and was given the title “Jingci Immortal Master”. The owner of the Qing Dynasty: In the eleventh year of Shunzhi (1654), the 15-year-old Shunzhi Concubine Tong gave birth to the future Kangxi here. Concubine Xi (Qianlong’s biological mother, Niuhulu), who ascended the throne under Yongzheng, moved from Lama Temple to Jingren Palace. Concubine Zhen of Guangxu entered the palace with her elder sister Concubine Jin at the age of 14, and lived in the east and west side halls of Jingren Palace, and was finally drowned by order of the Empress Dowager Cixi…

Among the six east palaces, the history of Yanxi Palace can be described as troubled. When it was completed in the early Ming Dynasty, it was renamed Yanqi Palace after its initial name Changshou Palace, and was renamed Yanxi Palace in Qing Dynasty. Since its completion, the Yanxi Palace has suffered repeated fires: it was rebuilt in the 25th year of Kangxi (1686) and the 7th year of Jiaqing (1802). In the twelfth year of Daoguang (1832), a fire broke out, which burned down the entire Yanxi Palace and rebuilt it again. In the 25th year of Daoguang (1845), a fire broke out in the Yanxi Palace, leaving only the palace gate. Xianfeng five years (1855) fire, rebuilt again. In the first year of Xuantong’s reign (1909), Empress Dowager Longyu spent 4 million to build a Western-style building “Water Palace” Lingzhao Xuan (commonly known as Crystal Palace). Lay the glass, and when you’re done it’ll be a walk-in super aquarium. This move has the meaning of suppressing the anger and revival of the Qing Dynasty, but until Xuantong abdicated, the project was not completed. When Zhang Xun was restored in 1917, the northern part of Yanxi Palace was unfortunately destroyed by plane bombs. In the entire palace, only the wellhead is in line with the original location of the well pavilion, leaving the only remaining remains. In 1931, the Palace Museum built a new cultural relic warehouse, which eventually became the first reinforced concrete building in the palace. In recent years, the story of the palace has been exaggerated by the media, and the little-known Yanxi Palace has once again aroused everyone’s curiosity. In fact, the concubines living in this secluded palace are living in hardship and poverty, and it is said that they do not even have enough food, even clothes, shoes and socks. The owner of Yanxi Palace in the Ming Dynasty is unknown, and the owners of the Qing Dynasty include Kangxi Chang in Xu and two people whose emblems are unknown and promised to live here.

The biggest difference between the West Six Palaces and the East Six Palaces in “100 Forbidden City” is that Taiji Palace and Changchun Palace, Yikun Guan and Chuxiu Palace are all connected into one. It makes the whole palace area have a strong color of life, and also makes the remaining Yongshou Palace and Xianfu Palace appear dull. Today, we look at Yikun Palace and Chuxiu Palace through “Forbidden City 100”. The Yikun Palace was originally called Wan’an Palace, and was renamed Yikun Palace in the Jiajing Period of the Ming Dynasty .

The book “Building the Forbidden City” wrote: The Meridian Gate was built in the eighteenth year of Yongle in the Ming Dynasty (1420), and rebuilt in the eighth year of Shunzhi (1651) and the sixth year of Jiaqing (1801) in the Qing Dynasty. The plane is concave, the pier is 12 meters high, there are 3 doors in the middle, and there is an east-west tuck door on each side, which is in the shape of “light, three, dark and five”.

 A gate tower is built in the middle of the pier, with a width of 9 rooms totalling 60.05 meters, and a depth of 5 rooms totalling 25 meters. From the city wall to the ground, it is 37.95 meters high from the face to the right kiss. There are bell and drum pavilions on the left and right sides of the main building, each with 3 pavilions, and 13 corridors on each of the two wings. Quemen forms a square of more than 9,900 square meters to the south, with Jialiang on the left and a sundial on the right on the imperial road in front of the gate. There are horse roads on the inside of each of the four gate piers to the top of the city platform, and there are roads connected to facilitate defense communication. Meridian Gate is not only the highest, largest and most magnificent gate in the Forbidden City, but also a perfect embodiment of the gate-queue form of ancient Chinese architecture.

The Forbidden City Book Store which in the grounds of the Forbidden City Complex Forbidden City Hundred Excellent Books Public welfare reading activities! ” Forbidden City Hundred Excellent Books  “The Way of Architecture of the Forbidden City”  with this in mind explanation of the Detailed explanation of the five-door and three-dynasty system of the Forbidden City Palace Complex  is the palace system of the Zhou Dynasty, representing orthodoxy, and it is the highest palace building level in ancient China, which has been almost inherited by all dynasties. Emperor Yongle of the Ming Dynasty transformed the city of Beijing, built the Forbidden City, and determined a new axis. However, he still followed the ancestral system and planned the Forbidden City in Beijing according to the Forbidden City in Nanjing.

Five gates and three dynasties were set up on the axis according to the “Rituals of Zhou”. During the Wanli period, the five gates were Daming Gate, Chengtian Gate, Duan Gate, Meridian Gate, and Huangji Gate, namely Fengtian Gate. The three dynasties were Huangji Hall (Fengtian Hall), Zhongji Hall (Huagai Hall), and Jianji Hall (Jinshen Hall). . When the Ming Dynasty brought chaos to order in the Yuan Dynasty, it simply razed the Yuan Dynasty to the ground, and set up five gates and three dynasties according to the orthodox thought of “Zhou Li”, indicating that the Ming Dynasty inherited the great power.



Now there is no Daming Gate, and the remaining four gates are Tiananmen, Duanmen, Meridian Gate, Taihemen, Taihe Hall, Zhonghe Hall, and Baohe Hall.


Why did the central axis of the Forbidden City move east? Where is the center of heaven and earth in the Forbidden City? What are the mysteries of the civil and military layout of Beijing City, the layout of the rear court of the Forbidden City, and the architectural methods of Emperor Qianlong that we are familiar with? With a book in hand, all doubts are solved

The Forbidden City Book Store which in the grounds of the Forbidden City Complex Forbidden City Hundred Excellent Books Public welfare reading activities! “The Way of the Forbidden City Architecture” is the work of Wang Zilin, an expert from the Palace Museum, to study the construction of the Forbidden City. The Forbidden City has a rich architectural language that emphasizes the principles of order, proportion and symmetry. The central axis is the backbone of the building and the pivot that supports the entire palace. The Forbidden City is upright, symmetrical and orderly, and is a “model student” of ancient Chinese official architecture. The architectural complex of the Forbidden City has a unique shape and cultural connotation rich in traditional charm.

For example, the frame structure of the Forbidden City—five gates and three dynasties, the front court and the back bed, the east and west six palaces, comes from the “Zhou Li”. The Qiankun hexagram in “Book of Changes” makes the combination of buildings have a metaphysical height and a solid foundation. For example, the plane structure of the east and west six palaces presents the three-painted hexagram, which symbolizes the Kun hexagram, while the Qianqing Palace, The names of Kunning Palace and Jiaotai Hall are directly derived from Qian Gua, Kun Gua and Tai Gua, which make the Forbidden City have the logical law of the positioning of heaven and earth and the intersection of heaven and earth. The red walls and yellow tiles constitute the color tone of the Forbidden City architecture. In traditional cognition, yellow symbolizes earth, red symbolizes fire, and earth is located in the center. Therefore, the three halls are built on earth-shaped platforms. The color is yellow, so the central emperor is called the Yellow Emperor.” According to the principle of the five elements, fire can generate soil, so the red wall symbolizes fire, and the yellow tile symbolizes soil. The building roofs in the Forbidden City include almost all the forms of ancient Chinese building roofs, such as hard hills, hanging hills, Xieshan, Hudian, Zanjian, cross ridges, double eaves, rolling tents, scorpion tops, etc. They have strict grades. The difference reflects the etiquette characteristics of that era.


In addition to deciphering the architectural language from the architecture itself, when the landscape and architecture are integrated and are no longer isolated natural landscapes, they also become part of the architectural language and shoulder the heavy responsibility of interpreting architectural ideals. The Jinshui River and Wansui Mountain in the Forbidden City are no longer natural mountains and waters in a pure sense, but have an inseparable relationship with architecture. Wansui Mountain is the backing of the Forbidden City. Without this mountain, the Forbidden City will lose its strongest barrier and become an isolated city. The Jinshui River also has this function. It not only provides water for the entire Miyagi city and ensures the water and drainage of the palace city, but also plays the role of connecting the northwest trunk with the southeast Sunda, making the Jinshui River an image of a trunk. The river of gold enables the communication between heaven and earth and the connection between mountains and lakes….

谷雨

谷雨 Qingming breaks snow from the 5th April  in which , 谷雨Grain Rain breaks frost”, Grain Rain (Journal of April 20th -4th may 2022 ) is the last solar term in spring. The arrival of Grain Rain means that the temperature will rise faster. In such a breath of spring, be sure to go out go! Grain rain, grain is born of rain!

谷雨# Today’s Grain Rain on the 20th April 2022  The late spring will turn into summer, rain produces all the grains and all things are lovely…. Rain produces all the grains, and all things spring. Grain Rain is the sixth solar term of the twenty-four solar terms and the last solar term in spring. At this time, the weather is getting warmer, the rain is increasing, and all the newly planted seedlings are eager for moisture.

It is recorded in “The Collection of the Seventy-two Hours of the Moon Order”: “In the middle of the third month, after the rain, the soil ointment pulsates, and now it rains its grains in water. Sow seeds at this time, from top to bottom.” Grain Rain, like rain, small man, light snow, heavy snow and other solar terms, is a solar term that reflects the phenomenon of precipitation, and is a reflection of the ancient farming culture on the season.



In traditional farming culture, the Grain Rain solar term links “gu” and “rain” to indicate precipitation conditions and “rain produces a hundred grains”. The most important feature of Grain Rain is the continuous spring rain, and the rain produces hundreds of grains, which reflects the agro-climatic significance of “Grain Rain”, which is the reflection of the ancient farming culture on the seasons. After the Grain Rain solar term, the temperature rises, the rainfall increases, and the humidity in the air further increases, which is very suitable for the growth of cereal crops, which is the best season for the growth of crops.

At this time, the southern part of China began to be significantly rainy, and especially in southern China, once the cold air meets the warm and humid air, it often forms a long-term rainy weather. Qinling-Huaihe is a transition area between the southern spring rain and the northern spring drought. From the vicinity of Qinling-Huaihe to the north, the spring rain decreases sharply. In the northern region, Grain Rain is a symbol of the “final frost”. There are fewer cases of cold air invading the south, but the cold air activities affecting the north have not stopped, and early thunder will occur in many places.



Grain Rain has three stages: the first stage when Ping is born; the second stage when the dove is singed and its feathers fluttered; the third stage when Dai Sheng falls to the mulberry. After Grain Rain, the rainfall increased, the duckweed began to grow, then the cuckoo began to remind people to sow, and then the hoopoe began to be seen on the mulberry tree.

During the Grain Rain solar term, you should eat more food that dispels dampness and benefits water. Since the humidity in the air gradually increases after the Grain Rain solar term, it is necessary to prevent “dampness” from invading and hurting the body. Pay attention to opening windows for ventilation, strengthening warmth, not catching a cold, getting more sunlight, and exercising appropriately. If the “dampness evil” has invaded, you can add some foods that dilute water and dampness in your daily diet, such as corn, poria, wax gourd, barley, and red bean. In addition to nourishing the liver and protecting the liver, Grain Rain health care also needs to pay attention to strengthening the spleen and stomach, because after the Grain Rain, it means that the spring is almost over, summer is coming, and the summer is mainly hot and humid. At this time, you should eat more according to your physical condition Foods that strengthen the spleen and stomach and dispel dampness, such as toona sinensis, black beans, barley, yam, crucian carp, etc., lay the foundation for summer.


Grain Rain Customs:

Drinking Grain Rain Tea. Guyu tea is the tea made from fresh tea leaves picked on the day of Guyu, and it must be picked in the morning. Guyu tea is green in color, soft in leaves, rich in vitamins and amino acids, and has a pleasant aroma. Legend has it that the tea of ​​Guyu on this day will clear fire, ward off evil spirits, and improve eyesight. So no matter what the weather is on Guyu day, people will go to Chashan to pick some new tea and come back to drink it.


Appreciate peonies. “Seeing Peony in Three Dynasties of Grain Rain”, peony flowers are known as Grain Rain Flowers and Flowers of Fortune. Qing Gu Lu’s “Qing Jialu” said: “The merchants who built the temple and the other halls will look at the flowers in a new way. If you don’t believe that there is no national color when you meet, Jin Peng only protects the spring of Yulou.” So far, Heze in Shandong and Luoyang in Henan will be in the rain season. A peony festival is held for people to watch and play.

Festival Cangjie. Qingming festivals to the Yellow Emperor and Guyu to Cangjie are folk traditions that have been passed down for thousands of years since the Han Dynasty. According to the “Huainanzi”, the Yellow Emperor issued an edict in late spring and early summer, announcing that Cangjie had succeeded in creating Chinese characters, and there was a rain of millet that day. After Cangjie’s death, people buried him in his hometown, the north of Shiguan Town, Baishui County. A couplet was engraved on the door of the tomb: “Yusu felt the emperor in the past, and the bridge mausoleum with Wen Yongshi.” The annual Gu Yu, “Cangjie Temple Fair” It will be held as scheduled in Baishui County, Shaanxi Province.


“Eat Spring”. Before and after the Grain Rain, toona sinensis is mellow and refreshing, with high nutritional value, so there is a saying that “the toona sinensis is as tender as silk before the rain”. People say that picking and eating Chinese toon in spring is “eating spring”. Toona sinensis is generally divided into purple toon buds and green toon buds, especially the purple toon buds. Fresh toon sprouts are rich in protein, carotene and a lot of vitamin C. Its leaves, buds, roots, skins and fruits can be used as medicine, which has various effects such as invigorating the stomach and regulating qi, preventing diarrhea and moisturizing the skin.

sacrificing sea. The Grain Rain Festival is also known as the “Zhuang Xing Festival” for fishermen to go fishing. In the coastal areas of northern China, fishermen have been celebrating the Grain Rain Festival for more than 2,000 years. When the sea sacrifice time arrives, the fishermen will carry offerings to the Sea Temple and the Niangniang Temple to offer sacrifices. It is still popular in the Rongcheng area of ​​Jiaodong today.

Go Grain Rain. In ancient times, there was a custom of “walking the Grain Rain”. On the day of Grain Rain, young women would go to the village to join their relatives, and some would come back after a walk in the wild. The meaning is to integrate with nature and strengthen the body

On 18th April 2022 it was International Day for Monuments and Sites | In the thousands of weather, the Forbidden City – Beijing – China – People’s Republic of China is guarded by them and this year’s theme is “Heritage and Climate”. Wind, frost, rain and snow, the four seasons rotate, and the lights and shadows belonging to the Forbidden City are constantly changing. Share with you the headline article “In the thousands of weather, the Forbidden City is guarded by them” (including many high-definition pictures of the Forbidden City

The theme of this year’s International Day of Monuments and Sites is “Heritage and Climate”, and we will share with you the stories of the protection of the Forbidden City under different “climates”.

​​In mid-March this year, the constantly loaded spring in Beijing was suddenly interrupted by a heavy snow. Changes in weather have brought a landscape of “snow” and “flowers” in the same frame to the Forbidden City.

Whether it is sunny or raining, frost or snow, the Forbidden City under thousands of weather attracts the attention of the world with its unique momentum as a world cultural heritage site.

Since ancient times, the ever-changing weather has always affected people’s lives. From farming, to dressing and commuting, many of our actions depend on observing and responding to the weather.

For the Forbidden City, the weather is not only its changing and “atmospheric” dress, but also determines its state of breathing and breathing, as well as the actions of a group of guardians.

Every crystal snow, every roar of thunder and lightning, every rain, what kind of weather-related stories are happening here?

Snow

The most eye-catching Forbidden weather is snow. It brings a “winter limited” plain silver outfit to the Forbidden City. In the winter wind hunting, jade butterflies dance in the air, and the melting snow turns into ice under the eaves.

In the winter when the Beijing Winter Olympics were successfully held, the capital was snowy. The snowflakes falling one after another fell on the city, which matched the unique surprise of “red wall and white snow”.

In addition to the picture of “Smashed and Falling Qiongfang”, a group of hurrying figures are fighting in every corner of the Forbidden City.

In order to ensure a safe and comfortable visiting experience for tourists, the Palace Museum has launched an emergency plan for opening up in snow in a timely manner according to the weather forecast.

 In three days, the Forbidden City has accumulated a snow-cleared area of ​​900,000 square meters and transported more than 500 vehicles.

In the silver-white world, the palace walls and palaces stand majestically, and the people who are busy in it become a different embellishment.

Perseverance in the cold wind has never changed. This warmth has always been stationed in this city, accompanying everyone who comes.

Thunder

When winter comes to spring, the breeze blows away the cold air and greens the willow branches along the river bank. The flow of air brings vitality to the city and promotes the renewal of everything.

“In the second month of the month, all things are out of shock, and the shock is thunder, so it is called Jingzhe.”

Spring thunder sprouting, all things grow, but where there is thunder, it is easy to make fire. This is undoubtedly a major safety risk for wood-structured buildings.

Looking inside the palace walls, the towering three halls, turrets and other buildings were struck by lightning several times and caught fire during the Ming and Qing Dynasties, resulting in heavy losses.

In order to pray to avoid lightning, the tenth ridge beast “Xingshi” was added to the roof of the Hall of Supreme Harmony during the Kangxi period. Its shape is similar to the image of Lei Gong in myths and legends, which means controlling thunder, suppressing thunder and eliminating disasters.

In addition to the careful thought of praying for blessings, the design of the metal top connected to the down-conduct under the glazed tile also realizes a simple “lightning avoidance” function that is quite labor-intensive.

The picture shows the lightning protection roof of Zhonghe Hall

In the 1980s, with the promulgation of the National Code for Design of Lightning Protection for Buildings, the renovation of lightning protection facilities in the Forbidden City was officially put on the agenda.

The Palace Museum and the Institute of Electrical Engineering of the Chinese Academy of Sciences jointly conducted a survey to improve the lightning protection design of the Palace Museum and carry out a large number of facilities repair work according to factors such as the law of lightning strikes in the Palace Museum and the material of the building roof.

Today, the modern lightning protection system has accompanied the Forbidden City to survive many lightning strikes. The single lightning rod on the kiss, the lightning protection belt on the roof… are the “lifelines” for the city’s lightning protection and disaster prevention.

The thunder sounded, and the rain came in time. Rolling spring thunder and falling rain are another feature of the Forbidden weather.

RAIN

When it comes to the rain in the Forbidden City, people often have many associations. The little ripples of the Jinshui River and the pavilions in the mirror like the fairy palace form the beautiful picture of the Forbidden City in the rain and after the rain.

The magnificent Forbidden City complex has survived countless showers, thanks to its exquisite drainage system.

In the large and small halls, whether it is a Xieshan top, a hard top, or a pointed or helmet top, the design of various roofs follows the characteristics of high ridge and steep slope, and the purpose is to drain rainwater quickly.

On the roof, raised tube tiles and sunken slabs form “drainage channels” – tile ridges. The rainwater that falls from the sky flows down in an orderly manner along the tile ridges, collects at the dripping places of the eaves, and flows to the ground.

The water accumulated on the eaves inside the palace wall is drained out of the wall along the drain.

Thousands of chi heads on the base of the hall also dutifully “spit” the accumulated water to the ground.

Countless streams of water leaked into the sewer channel along the money eye and groove on the ground, and finally all drained into the Inner Jinshui River, completing another flow cycle.

The rainy day story of the Forbidden City is not limited to the long and complete outdoor drainage system.

The temperature and humidity of the indoor environment have a direct impact on the health and longevity of buildings and cultural relics. In 2005, the Palace Museum began to monitor the temperature and humidity of the exhibition halls, and gradually selected pilots and established a data platform. Today, the Forbidden City has already achieved comprehensive monitoring of the temperature and humidity of the exhibition halls.

At present, the Palace Museum has installed 207 monitoring equipment in 63 cultural relics buildings and warehouses, focusing on data collection of the preservation environment of indoor color paintings, decoration and ceiling decoration.

In addition to the regular temperature and humidity monitoring, there are also monitoring of carbon dioxide concentration in the exhibition halls such as Wuying Hall. In some original exhibition halls such as Kunning Palace and Chuxiu Palace, the monitoring of light is also added to prevent visible light and ultraviolet rays from affecting cultural relics. The damage caused is supported by data.

The figurative monitoring data provides accurate and powerful reference for the repair of many ancient buildings in the Forbidden City and the protection of cultural relics.

Wind, frost, rain and snow, the four seasons rotate. The thousands of lights and shadows belonging to the Forbidden City are constantly changing, but what remains unchanged is the diligent pursuit of generations of guardians for the continuation of civilization.

The humidity of the exhibition hall can be monitored in real time through the background of the monitoring system

Bathed in thousands of years of wind and rain, the ancestors formed a unique building construction wisdom in the long years ; today, modern scientific and technological means are escorting the Forbidden City .

In 2011, the Palace Museum built an automatic meteorological monitoring station. Since then, the meteorological “codes” such as precipitation, snow depth, and illumination of this ancient building complex can be measured, providing accurate data for the formulation of plans to prevent unexpected meteorological events.

When the rain ends and the sky clears, I hope that the majestic Forbidden City, which has experienced thousands of weather, will continue to write more exciting weather stories under the joint protection of you and me, and walk through the next 600 years safely!
