The largest open square in the Outer Court awaits you after leaving the Gate of Supreme Harmony. It is surrounded by eight structures with the Hall of Supreme Harmony in the center. From right to left are: Belvedere of Embodying Benevolence (Tiren ge), the Left-wing Gate (Zuo yimen) and Middle Left Gate (Zhongzuo men). These two gates lead to the courtyard of the Middle Harmony Pavilion. Surveying this view is the moment most people begin to recognize the magnitude of the Forbidden City. The former Imperial City consists of 90 palaces, 980 buildings and an incredible 8,704 rooms.
