    Complete Harmony

    by solopes Updated Dec 31, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "Harmony" is the common word in the description of the several spaces of the Forbidden City. The smallest one is "complete".
    Why? Don't ask - I didn't read that much. It was used by the emperor to rest, in his way to the Hall of Supreme Harmony, more than 15 meters distant, however, I think that he could do the journey in a single day.
