The Forbidden City was the Chinese imperial palace from the Ming Dynasty to the end of the Qing Dynasty. It is located in the middle of Beijing, China, and now houses the Palace Museum. For almost five centuries, it served as the home of the Emperor and his household, as well as the ceremonial and political centre of Chinese government.

The common English name, "the Forbidden City," is a translation of the Chinese name Zijin Cheng (Chinese: ; pinyin: Zjinchng; literally "Purple Forbidden City"). Another English name of similar origin is "Forbidden Palace".[3]
