Photographer's Note

The first courtyard has an artificial creek, crossed by some bridges of marble.
At each day around 20,000 people visit this monument.
Pay attention in the adornments of the bridge, that pinnacles show ever some dragons, the symbol of emperor, this is ever the same design for the whole China.
Forbidden City almost was destroyed, as revenge, by European troops when they invaded Beijing at the end of Qing Dynasty.
..................

O primeiro pátio da Cidade Proibida tem um regato artificial, cruzado por algumas pontes de mármore.
A cada dia, cerca de 20 mil pessoas visitam esse local.
Reparem nos adornos da ponte, os pináculos tem sempre o relevo de dragões, o símbolo do imperador, algo que é sempre igual por toda a China.
A Cidade Proibida quase foi destruída, como castigo, quando as tropas europeias invadiram a cidade no final da dinastia Qing.
