Tiananmen Square & Forbidden City

Uncategorized

Visité la Plaza Tiananmen y la Ciudad Prohibida el domingo 25 pero no había tenido tiempo de actualizarles. La Ciudad Prohibida, donde vivían los emperadores a lo largo de diferentes dinastías en la historia, ocupa área de aproxidamente 150 acres en el centro histórico de Beijing. El palacio tiene 9,900 habitaciones en donde vivían, por momentos, 30,000 empleados sirviendo a 100 miembros de la familia real. En contexto, en la ciudad donde vive el grupo de South Dakota State University con quienes recorrí la ciudad tiene por ejemplo 20,000 habitantes.

Es un palacio de abrumantes dimensiones, difícil de describir, lleno de simbolismos y mucha seguridad a través de muchos inmensos portales y muros de hasta 1 kilometro.

Visited Tiananmen Square and Fobidden City on Sunday but hadn’t had time to up-date. Forbidden City, where the emperor’s used to live through-out different dinasties, occupies an approximate 150-acre area in Beijing’s historic center. The palace has 9,900 rooms in which 30,000 people lived at some point to serve 100 royal family members. In parallel, the city where the South Dakota University group with whom I was touring the city, has 20,000 inhabitants.

It is a palace of overwhelming proportions, hard to describe and full of symbolisms and high security through many gates and kilometer wide walls.

Mao is watching you.

Ancient vs. refurbished
