At the end of a tour of the Forbidden City is the beautiful imperial garden. An oasis of trees and rocks among the buildings that make up the Forbidden City’s inner court, the imperial garden makes a wonderful coda to a walking tour of the...More

The garden has been restored beautifully. Adorned with the kind of rocks that the one of the emperors (there were 7 I believe that ever lived in the Forbidden City) loved, and old cypress trees. Too bad you can't go into any of the buildings...More

This is an amazing garden, with many trees over 300 years old. Unless the pollution is bad, do yourself a favor and spend some time taking it all in.

This is a great garden but if you're looking for flowers this is not it. You'll find lots of trees, rocks, buildings and a man made pond. Oh yes, there's also a royal gazebo which is something else to behold.

It is at the north of the Forbidden city and mixes, statues, rocks and plants in a garden setting. However like most of the Forbidden City there are crowds so hard to enjoy the peace and serenity of this garden.
