Palace of Great Benevolence-Forbidden City

The Forbidden City (Chinese故宫pinyinGùgōng) is a palace complex in central Beijing, China. It houses the Palace Museum, and was the former Chinese imperial palace from the Ming dynasty to the end of the Qing dynasty (the years 1420 to 1912). The Forbidden City served as the home of emperors and their households and was the ceremonial and political center of Chinese government for almost 500 years.

Constructed from 1406 to 1420, the complex consists of 980 buildings[3] and covers 72 hectares (over 180 acres).[4][5] The palace exemplifies traditional Chinese palatial architecture,[6] and has influenced cultural and architectural developments in East Asia and elsewhere. The Forbidden City was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987,[6] and is listed by UNESCO as the largest collection of preserved ancient wooden structures in the world.

Since 1925, the Forbidden City has been under the charge of the Palace Museum, whose extensive collection of artwork and artifacts were built upon the imperial collections of the Ming and Qing dynasties. Part of the museum’s former collection is now in the National Palace Museum in Taipei. Both museums descend from the same institution, but were split after the Chinese Civil War. Since 2012, the Forbidden City has seen an average of 14 million visitors annually, and received more than 16 million visitors in 2016[7] and 2017.[1]

Six Eastern Palaces is situated on Dongyichang Street on the east side of the central axis of the Forbidden City. It is an architectural complex composed of 6 yards built in the same style. The six palaces are Palace of Great Benevolence (Jingrengong), Palace of Accumulated Purity (Zhongcuigong), Palace of Celestial Favor (Chengqiangong), Palace of Great Brilliance (Jingyanggong), Palace of Eternal Harmony(Yonghegong) and Palace of Prolonging Happiness (Yanxigong). These palaces each have a square shape of 50 meters (54.7 yards) on each side, with one principal room, two wing rooms, and two courtyards respectively.

Palace of Great Benevolence,as one of the six eastern palaces in the Forbidden City, was a residence of imperial concubines.The renowned Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty (1644 – 1911) was born in this palace in 1654 and his prosperous reign lasted 61 years. Now it is an exhibition hall for exhibiting the donated cultural relics and shows gratitude and respect to the donors.

The Shanxi Bronze Museum

Located at Taiyuan, North China’s Shanxi Province, the Shanxi Bronze Museum is the first provincial-level bronze museum in China.As a branch of the Shanxi Museum, the new museum is located on a small island in Taiyuan’s Chengfeng Culture and Business District. It shares five connected and independent inverted cone buildings with the Taiyuan Museum.The unique modern design of the Taiyuan Museum has earned it the nickname “instant noodle bucket” from locals and makes it one of the city’s standout landmarks.

The new museum boasts an exhibition area 11,000 square meters. Taking Bronze Brilliance as its theme, the main display is divided into three parts that show the development and highlights of China’s Bronze Age: Imprints of Chinese Civilization, The Spirit of Rites and Music and The Model of Skill and Art.

The Bronze Age was a significant stage in human history. China was one of the earliest civilizations to enter the Bronze Age. Archeological evidence indicates that Bronze culture had already reached maturity by the Xia Dynasty (C.2070-C.1600 BC). It reached its peak during the Shang Dynasty (C.1600BC-1046BC) to Western Zhou Dynasty (1046BC – 771BC) and the area of current Shanxi province was the heartland of Chinese bronze civilization at that time.

The Shanxi bronzes on display reveal the main cultural currents of the Shang and Western Zhou dynasties, reflecting the progress in the evolution and development of China’s ritual culture. It also re-shows how geographic connections helped fuse the agricultural and steppe civilizations of the time and how that impacted the design of bronzes.

All the museum grade display cases/showcases/display cabinets for the Shanxi Bronze Museum are designed,supplied and installed by Wangda Showcases.

It is located at Zhanjiawan Village, about 20 kilometers north of Xian City, where Emperor Jingdi of Western Han Dynasty was buried.

During the 17-year reign of Emperor Jingdi, he developed a peaceful relationship with the Huns (nomads to the north of China) through intermarriage, and reduced the burden of tax, corvee and penalty, by which way Han economy developed rapidly after the turmoil at the end of Qin Dynasty. So he is remembered as a capable emperor in Chinese history, together with his father Emperor Wendi, opened a golden era of harmony in the early feudal society, which was later regarded as “the Great Reign of Wen and Jing”.

The total area of the mausoleum is 20 square meters and the construction time is as long as 28 years from 153 BC to 126 BC. The entire complex is designed in line with the imperial state powers and their predominant hierarchic ranks, taking the Emperor’s graveyard as the very center, scattered around it are burial pits, archaeological exhibitions, criminal graveyard and some satellite tombs.

The Mausoleum of Emperor Jingdi was excavated in 1972 which was the beginning of the excavation of Hanyang Mausoleum. In 2007, the underground Protection Hall covering ten burial pits east of the emperor’s tomb mound with an area of 8000 square meters, was opened to public. It has been modernized with heated glass wall and tunnel to separate the relics and visitors into two areas of different temperature and humidity aimed to protect and maintain the relics on a large scale while allowing visitors to view the relics at different angles within a short distance in the mysterious environment.
