Puppet Emperor Palace
During the Japanese occupation of Manchuria (1931-1945), the last emperor of the Qing dynasty (1644-1911) Puyi was installed as the "puppet" ruler of the renamed state of Manchukuo. The Puppet Emperorís Palace was built by the Japanese especially for Puyi to inhabit.
The palace covers an area of 43,000 sq meters and comprises imperial style buildings, courtyards and gardens. Parts have been restored and are used as a permanent exhibition with displays relating to the Japanese occupation.
