The Six Western Palaces -About the Forbidden City

These palaces are located north of the Hall of Mental Cultivation, three palaces on each side of an alley going from north to south.

They were the living quarters for the empress and the concubines. The original layout was preserved to offer visitors some basic ideas about the way of life the imperial family led.

Ci'xi lived in the Palace of Eternal Spring (Chang Chun Gong) during the reign of Tongzhi. The last emperor's wife lived in the Palace of Accumulated Elegance (Chu Xiu Gong) until 1924.

The original piece of 18th and 19th century furniture are still kept and on display here. Also on display here are some fine paintings illustrating the famous novel "The Dream of the Red Mansions."

In the past, there was a well known saying "3.000 beauties live in the Inner Court", it actually referrd to those women living in the Six Western Palaces.
