Forbidden City, Beijing #travel

Forbidden City Roof

This is another photo taken in the Forbidden city, Beijing. The carvings and figures on the roof are amazing. The roof design allows people to see the figures easily and they add a decorative touch. The figures all have meanings, and they were only used on important buildings such as palaces, government buildings and temples.

ForbiddenCity

Lots of color and beautiful buildings. Lots of people too, although we were early enough to avoid the worst of the crowds.
