The design and architecture of this building helps it to stand out from all the others within the complex. We had a private guide who explained the significance of everything about this structure. Very impressive to walk up the stairs and see how it rises above you. Despite the site being crowded, you could still appreciate its beauty and take plenty of photos.

We went there with friends to see what the emperor has been up to. It is a vast complex of 1000 * 750 meters, with 8000 rooms. They started building 1400 BC !

Seeing pictures of the Hall of Great Harmony are nothing compared to seeing it in person - we could have easily spent more time here as it is huge - but we where on a tour - a must do

You'll see it if you go to the Forbidden City. A lot of the halls look similar. Nothing particularly special about this one.
