Puppet Emperor's Palace

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.
During the Japanese occupation of Manchuria form 1931 to 1945, the last emperor of the Qing dynasty PuYi was installed as the puppet ruler of the renamed state of Manchukuo. The Puppet Palace was built by the Japanese especially for PuYi to inhabit.
The palace, which covers an area of 43,000 square meters, itself, is a miniature of the emperor's exiled home, the Forbidden City in Beijing. It is a complex composed of several buildings in a variety of taste and style, including architecture of Chinese, Japanese, and European form. The palace can be divided into two parts, the front palace for administrative purposes and the rear palace for residence. The largest and most impressive of the buildings, the Tonde Palace was not lived in by the emperor since he believed it to be bugged. The best of the blocks is the Qin Ming Building which houses the throne, a variety of gimmicky wax models of PuYi, one of his wives and others, and documents of his life, from stately childhood to Japanese pawn.
The rear palace gives visitors a glimpse of the grandness that was the facade of life here, a swimming pool, a tennis court, a few gardens, courtyards and even a bomb shelter are the accoutrements of the emperor’s empty life, a life that is chronicled within, on diary pages that are attached to the wall. There are also exhibitions here to the atrocities that the Japanese manufactured in their inhumane reign in northeast China.
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.
