Wishlisted by Lemi

During the Ming Dynasty, the Palace of Earthly Tranquility (坤宁宫, Kunning Gong) was the Empress’ living quarters. Eunuchs would also spend much time here as they watched over these women. Later on, in the Qing Dynasty, it served two polar functions. First, as the bridal chamber where undoubtedly some life was conceived; second, as a venue of sacrificial offerings to the deities of Shamanism. Seek traces of these interesting times yourself as you walk through the City’s most private chambers.
