The Forbidden City: Restored

I just watched “Inside the Forbidden City” at The National Geographic Channel and it provided such interesting story of the restoration of The Forbidden City in lieu of the upcoming Beijing Olympics. It also shared a story of the rise of the Forbidden City and the emperors’ lives inside the city.

Having visited the Forbidden City last year (during its restoration period), I took a photo of one of the doors which looked like this:

10 by you.

And now, it’s this. 🙂

Nine rows of nine bolts - can you guess the imperial number?

Congratulations to the restoration team of the Forbidden City! I wish to be back there soon and see the city within a city in its full colors! 🙂
