Wishlisted by Lemi

Between the Palace of Heavenly Purity and the Palace of Earthly Tranquility, a relatively small edifice called the Hall of Union (交泰殿, Jiao Tai Dian) stands. The Emperor was considered a “Son of Heaven,” so the balance of heaven and earth was a principal feature to represent in the Imperial Palace. It has maintained its importance, keeping ceremonial items under its protection. Find a 300-year old, six-meter tall water clock that once set the official time for the entire City!
