Forbidden City to Close Every Monday

In the heart of Beijing, the Forbidden City was home to China’s emperors and was the highest center of power for about 500 years. It attracts more than 14 million visitors annually. Starting this week, the Palace Museum (also known as the Forbidden City) will be closed to the public every Monday for renovation and maintenance. The closures will allow for updates and cultivation of the formal imperial palace, including the protection of ancient cultural relics, renovation and upkeep to the architecture and further training for the museum staff. The museum will be open on Mondays during the months of July and August.
