Forbidden City by Pramod Kanakath

Forbidden City

I am standing just behind the Gate of Supreme Harmony inside the Forbidden City in Beijing, China. I chose this part for photography as the moat leading to the five marble bridges creates a fitting foreground to the architectural marvel. The presence of a boat was an additional aspect of the spectacle. The Forbidden City was built between 1406 and 1420 and was the administrative centre of the Ming and the Qing dynasties
