Ming Palace Ruins

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Near Zhongshan Gate to the east of the city is the site of the palace built by Ming emperor Hongwu. Before its destruction this palace was a splendid structure and the Imperial Palace in Beijing is said to be modeled after it. The palace was damaged by two fires and fell into disrepair after the Ming court moved to Beijing. The Manchus also looted the palace as did Qing and Western troops during the Taiping Rebellion. Today, all that remains of the former grandeur are some foundation stones, stone lions and the stone screen wall facing the former palace.
China is a popular travel destination for visitors and globe trotters from all over the world who appreciate its beautiful landscapes, rich culture, delicious local cuisine, hospitality and safety. Quality is China's top priority.
