world pictures China: Beijing: Imperial Palaces

Off the long western alley shown earlier, this is the Gate of Following Righteousness, which leads to the Mental Cultivation Hall (Yangxindian). Built in 1802, this palace became the emperor's residence. It was the home, for example, of Xuantong, better known in the West as Henry P'u Yi, the last emperor. He lived here from 1912 until, 280 years after the establishment of the Qing Dynasty, he went in 1924 to Tianjin, where the Japanese gave him the hollow title of Emperor of Manchukuo.
