Good place to rest before exiting the Forbidden Palace
Apr 2019
At the end of your tour of the Forbidden City, you come across this imperial garden with its plants and rock garden. We stopped here to rest our tired legs before we exited from the back of the Forbidden City.

Exquisitely Serene and Relaxing
Nov 2019
The Imperial Garden is a relaxing and serene setting located within the Forbidden City’s walls. Back in the day, only the Emperor and his court were allowed to relax in this garden. There’s a magnificent pavilion located within the garden as well as a variety of sacred rocks.

Garden Delight
Oct 2019
After visiting the Forbidden City this should be your next stop. It is set in a beautiful garden that has a long history. The garden is beautifully laid out and has many sections to it. It is a treat to climb to the top of the hill and have a view of the entire Forbidden City. It is quite a steep climb but very well worth it.

Garden for the royal family
Sep 2019
This is my third visit to the Forbidden City. There are some nice rock formations, plants, trees and pavilion. It is less crowded here compared to the main halls and buildings. Even then, I didn't manage to find any empty seat to rest and relax. Hence I briefly walked through this garden and moved on.

Beautiful Garden

It was a beautiful Chinese-styled garden. Smaller than what I expected, but it’s a very nice place to stroll and relax in (if you can ignore the crowd).

This is inside the Forbidden City and a beautiful tranquil area (despite the crowds). I enjoyed walking in amongst the rock formations, lovely cool spots to sit and rest out of the the searing heat

Nice area
Aug 2019 • Couples
It may not be your 'western ' idea of a garden but it is a pleasant end to your visit through the Forbidden City. Take a while to relax before you join the bus / taxi / tuk-tuk melee outside. You'll be grateful that you did

Chinese Garden at the Exit of the Imperial City
Mar 2019 • Friends
It is supposed to be a sacred place for the emperors with in the forbidden city. By the time you reach there from the entrance at the southern gate you are all tired but this garden gives you some peace and relaxation but crowded with tourists.

Contemplative sacred space....
Jun 2019 • Couples
an oasis within the forbidden city... This is a beautiful space to take a rest and have some water. Bring plenty of water, a frog togg, and an umbrella for shade in the summer palace because this garden provides the only shade.
