Local friend took me here while we are out riding bikes to watch the sunset and it was absolutely beautiful. Droves of people were all gathered around, some with camera rigs that made me jealous. Would recommend to anyone, great way to end a day in Beijing, or start your night ;)

The turrets can be easily missed inside the palace museum. Walking along the walls, you can appreciate the defensive construction of the Forbidden city.

When you walk along the walkway you get a feel for the size of the moat and wall. It would have been extremely difficult to attack. Beautiful as well as impressive. I definitely took photos.

Most of the tourists miss the Turrets during their visit to the Forbidden City.Every corner of the forbidden city has a turret tower. It is a complex construction in itself. Interestingly enough the turrets were constructed like the cages made for Crickets!!

The Forbidden City has many items of interest that must be seen. A tour of the city is interesting, informative and amazing.

The castle most was dug out around the Forbidden City for defensive purposes. However, during some winter months it freezes over and loses some of its defensive value. After going through the Forbidden City, I returned to the front entrance area by walking along the turret. On the walk, I say two men fishing in the moat’s waterway.

The Palace Museum itself is fantastic, a thing of wonder and beauty, but the turret offers an extra dimension, rather in the way that the dome makes St Paul's in London stand out.

Absolutely stunning architecture and views. Although this is not well attended as the main areas of the palace, you are missing out if you bypass the chance.

Turrets seem to be a common place in Chinese architecture. This turret is quite characteristic of the summer palace that houses it. Don't miss to take the picture of this amazing master piece of architecture.
