Tiananmen Square has great cultural significance as it was the site of many important historic events.

It is a massive architectural complex that covers an area of 725,000 square meters and it served as the home of 24 emperors and their households and the ceremonial and political center of the imperial government for almost 500 years. Its construction was initiated in 1406 by Emperor Zhu Di, the third emperor of Ming Dynasty and it lasted for 14 years. It is said that Forbidden City contains totally 9999.5 rooms. Why 9999.5 rooms instead of 10000? A legend explains that Emperor Zhu Di initially wanted to build 10000 rooms. But he had a dream in which he met the Jade Emperor, the ruler of the heavenly realm in Chinese legends, who was infuriated at the news that the human emperor would build an imperial palace that had more rooms than his. When Emperor Zhu Di woke up from the dream, he knew he shouldn’t challenge authority. As a compromise, he finally decided to build 9999.5 rooms. 
 
After the visit, you will have lunch at a nice local restaurant. After lunch, you will move on to the Temple of Heaven.
