Shenyang Imperial Palace

Introduction

Shenyang Imperial Palace was built in 1625 when the Manchus declared Shenyang to be their capital. The palace is very similar in design to the Forbidden City in Beijing but slightly smaller and has more than 300 buildings covering an area of 60,000 sq meters.

Upon founding the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), the Manchus moved their court to Beijing and Shenyang became the 2nd capital. The palace was enlarged and improved over the years and while itís layout has the traditional Han style, it also blends Manchu, Mongolian and Han style art.
