Deeper into the Forbidden City, we arrive at the Inner Court where the Palace of Heavenly Purity (乾清宫, Qian Qing Gong) housed the sovereign ruler during his most intimate moments. It was the private residence of the monarch where very few people had access. Later on, it served as an audience hall for the Qing Dynasty when the Yongzheng Emperor opted to inhabit another palace instead. A throne and desk stand in the middle of the Palace where the Emperor would pore over official documents
