Forbidden City
Meridian Gate 午门

The Meridian Gate 午门 (Wǔmén) marks the entry to the Forbidden City and Palace Museum proper. Tian'anmen and Duanmen 端门 (Duānmén) are part of the outer defenses. Before we enter the palace, the next slide will take you to the east gate and we will come back to the Meridian Gate by that route.
