This video is of the entrance to the Forbidden city with the Gold knobs, which people believe gives them good luck if they rub while passing by. Next in the video, I show the courtyard of Supreme Harmony where I include the intricate handmade artwork surrounding the complex, the vast stonework of the railings and walkways, and metalwork of the huge cauldrons placed around the exterior which were used to burn oil at night and/or in the winter for light and/or warmth.
