“The second day, we went to “The National Centre for the Performing Arts”. The building outside looks just like a boiled egg.
Next we were in “Tian’an Men’. It is the main entrance to the imperial city in both Ming and Qing dynasties, where the emperor promulgated his edicts. Tian’an Men are tall and solemn and its rostrum looks majestic with its upturned eaves, carved beams and painted rafters, and yellow tiles and red walls. It is how the symbol of New China. We need pass the security checking to get inside of building. On June 4, 1989. The “Tank Man” incident happened here.
Then we were in “The National Palace Museum”. We have visual feast of 5,000 years of traditional Chinese art, with a rich concentration of architecture and artifacts from the Ming and Qing imperial courts.”To see all of Annie’s photos’, click HERE.
