Shah Faisal introducing the 3 court halls

大家好,我叫Shah Faisal,我的中文名字是沙飞,我来自巴基斯坦,我是二零二三级的学生。

We have visited the forbidden city, it is located in Beijing, China, it is an architectural marvel steeped in history and significance. Today, it stands as one of China's most iconic landmarks and a must-visit destination for tourists seeking to immerse themselves in the country's rich cultural heritage.

From our visit I remember it comprises three main big halls, including Tai he Dian, Zhong he Dian, and Bao he Dian, it served as the epicenter of imperial power for nearly six centuries. Also, outside of the building there were big vats that was used for storing water because all the buildings were constructed of woods so if there was a fire somewhere, then that water would be used to take off the fire.

Also, I noticed there were 81(9 × 9) buttons on its doors which symbolizes the emperor's authority and highlights the meticulous attention to detail in its design.

Thankful.
