A postcrossing post card from Xizhe in Shangai.

Xishe is on vacation at the moment, planning a trip next year to Greece.

The Hall of Great Harmony is part of the “Forbidden City” in Beijing, built in 1406 by the Hongwu Emporer, it served as the Imperial Palace of the Ming and Qing Dynasties for almost 500 years.

The city was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987.

Thanks for the postcard Xishe!
