Many of the different portions of the forbidden city can become "just another stop / portion" of the overall Forbidden City. Our guide took the time to explain each portion and this made the In we Court seem, at least to us, much more interesting.

I love this section of The Forbidden City. the rooms are restored to their greatness. the throne is quite stunning. Looking at it-one can just envision the Emperors sitting upon it. Something about this section gives off such a powerful feeling. Very good experience indeed.
