Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This small building in the Forbidden City is right behind the Palace of Heavenly Purity. It contains a water clock made in 1745 and a mechanical clock made in 1797.

This hall is sometimes called the Hall of Union and Peace, or to use a more specific translation, the Hall of Celestial and Terrestrial Union. Its name is deliberate as is its location between the Hall of Heavenly Purity and the Hall of Earthly Purity. Unlike most major halls in the Forbidden City, it's square in shape. And It's pretty difficult to miss this hall if one follows the regular path through the palace in a south-to-north direction. However, it may be tempting to pass on it if one has developed a one-hall-too-many feeling. After all, large crowds can make it feel congested, and it's not as conspicuous as other larger halls in the Inner Court. Nevertheless, this hall is perhaps a short peek in as it's here where the numerous royals seals (mostly made from jade) were kept in boxed wrapped in silk. Visitors can still view the silk-wrapped boxes today.

It is located between the Palace of Heavenly Purity and the Palace of Earthly Tranquility. These three halls together constitute the centre of the Inner Court of the palace complex. Hall of Union is a square structure similar to the Hall of Middle Harmony, but smaller. I didn't find it interesting.

The smallest palace of the inner court, this hall was used for birthday celebrations and ceremonies of the Empresses. Another function was to be the repository for the Imperial Seals. We did not however see any seals there.

We were told the hall stores the famous 25 Imperial seals, but we could not find them anywhere (perhaps they were lent to a museum, or something similar).
Other than those unfound seals, this hall had no unique features at all.
