Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven

The final part of 3 clips from a 2002 trip to China. In Beijing, we visit the Temple of Heaven and watch people in the surrounding gardens. Thereafter, we go to the Tien An Men Square area and thence proceed into the Forbidden City (now officially called the Palace Museum.) Various halls and galleries, like Bao He Dian -- the Hall of Preserving Harmony with its yellow Imperial throne, where the emperor held banquets and interviewed imperial-examination candidates -- can be seen. Running time 51 minutes.
