Entering the Forbidden City

Separating the Forbidden City from Tiananmen Square is the Tiananmen Gate. It is famous for the huge picture of Mao.

There were huge crowds, even early on a Sunday morning, and the police didn't want folks stopping for long amounts of time. "No photo, move on", yells the police officer.

This lovely garden was just beside the Tiananmen Gate and may have been considered a moat.
