of the Warring States, and was extended and fortified by subsequent
dynasties: Qin, Han and Ming, the Great Wall extends to more
than 5,000 kilometers.

||Beijing / Xin
Pick you up from you hotel in Beijing.
Visit the Imperial Palace (Forbidden City), the Tiananmen
Square and the Temple of Heaven. Drive back to cruise ship before
your departure time. (Lunch)
City: Built between 1406 and 1420, the Forbidden City was
the palace of the emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties, a
period extending over 500 years. The atmosphere created by the
many temples, halls and courtyards - not to mention the colors
of the tiles, roofs and painted wood - is unique, leaving you
with a lasting impression of imperial China. The palace has
over 9000 rooms.
Square: The heart of urban Beijing and large enough to accommodate
an assembly of one million people. It stands in front of the
Forbidden City, at its north the Tiananmen Rostrum, from which
imperial decrees were promulgated.
of Heaven: The Temple of Heaven, completed in 1420 during
the reign of Ming Emperor Yongle, originally served as the most
sacred space in which the emperor (the Son of Heaven) would
perform the most important sacrifices and rites. The gods of
earth, water, war, and civilian affairs were all honored, but
it was the god of agriculture who received special attention.
On the winter solstice, the emperor, after ritual fasts and
purification, would beseech Heaven for bountiful harvests. The
temple's layout reflects the Confucian/Daoist worldview that
anchored the imperial order, with the square bases of the circular
temples articulating the relationship between Earth and Heaven
- the emperor serving as intermediary, administering human affairs
on behalf of the divine order. The most distinctive temple in
the complex, and one of the most famous buildings in China,
not to mention the world, is the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests.
