Palace of the eternal harmony (Yonghe gong)
Palace of the eternal harmony
Built in 1420, this palace was the residence of the imperial concubines Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911). This palace is located in the eastern interior annexes, ie the North-East zone of the forbidden city. As the photo above shows, this palace had a roof extremely decorated with colored ceramics. The eaves are very worked too. Inside there are porcelain exhibits from the Neolithic period, and then back in time to the last dynasty, the Qing.
This palace is part of six Eastern palaces, in the oriental annexes inside.
