Built in 1406 Yongle Emperor Zhu Di it became the seat of the Ming Dynasty until 1644. These days it’s no more than a tourist attraction. With scandals such as Starbucks opening inside it, and foreigner only stalls with outlandish prices. Hopefully it’s historical value will come about one day again.
