The Forbidden City is located immediately north of Tiananmen Square and is the former palace of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It was built in the early 1400s and used for about 500 years by China's emperors; it was also the political center of the country. There are nearly a thousand buildings in the complex, and nobody was allowed to enter or leave the Forbidden City without express permission from the emperor. Currently, this is the world's largest surviving palace complex and is located in the center of the Beijing urban area.
