About Shenyang

Shenyang, the capital and largest city of Liaoning Province, gives visitors an impression of great change and modernizing resilience. As the former base of the Imperial City Wall, Shenyang bore witness to the rise of the Manchu Qing Dynasty. The last four hundred years have left the people of Shenyang with a royal palace, two imperial tombs and numerous royal architectural remains. The colonnades of the Shenyang Mukden Palace resemble Beijing’s Forbidden City and still give voice to the secret history of the court. Every brick in Marshal Zhang’s Mansion depicts the history of the Warlord Era. The Mukden Incident Museum tells the story of the pain of that humiliation (also known as the Manchurian Invasion). Shengjing, as it was once known, now has more of a modern feeling. It is a major industrial center and transportation hub for Northeast Asia. The bustle and neon of Zhongjie Road, the lofty television towers, and the lively Liu Laogen Grand Stage all bear witness to the ever-changing nature of Shenyang.

Shenyang Imperial Palace is located in Shenhe District of Shenyang and is one of only two complete palace complexes that remain in China. It served as the imperial palace during the Later Jin dynasty, but became a regional palace after the capital of the Qing dynasty was changed to Beijing. Shenyang Imperial Palace Museum not only boasts exquisite ancient palace architecture, but also has a wealth of valuable items in its collections; there are, for example, a large number of relics left over from the old imperial palace. Shenyang Imperial Palace is divided into three parts according to the architectural layout and construction sequence: the eastern area is the portion built by Nurgaci, including Dazheng Hall; the central area is the portion built by Hong Taiji; and the western area is the portion built by Emperor qianlong, including Wenshuo Pavilion.

The Forbidden City, not only in Beijing, but also has a long history of the Forbidden City. The administrative center of Emperor Taiji of the Qing Dynasty was in the Forbidden City in Shenyang. The Forbidden City in Beijing is the palace of the emperors of the Ming Dynasty and the Forbidden City in Shenyang is the palace of the Manchurian royal family. Later, after the Qing Dynasty moved all the palaces here to Beijing, the Ming Dynasty Palace naturally became the Manchu Palace, and it was located in Shenyang. After the expansion of the Forbidden City, it became the palace of the emperors' east tour, which is also the veritable Dongjiao Imperial Palace. The architectural style of the
Shenyang Imperial Palace was built in full accordance with the characteristics of the Northeast. As for the Northeast style, you can refer to the architectural style of Zhang's handsome house. Under the influence of the architectural culture of the Ming Palace, the palace in Shenyang was built according to the combination of the characteristics of the Northeast and the Ming Dynasty. Therefore, when we come to the Forbidden City in Shenyang, we will first find that there is no obvious atmosphere of Manchu culture. In the interior of the palace, we will find some custom features of the Manchu in the Northeast. The initial size of the
Shenyang Palace was not large. After the expansion, it was equivalent to the area of the Ming Palace in Beijing. The overall design is in line with the traditional Chinese theory of building Feng Shui. Probably because the Manchus are more respectful of the Han feng shui, the overall design and the Feng Shui pattern of the Ming Palace can be said to be twin brothers and sisters. The overall structure of the
red wall and black tile, combined with the embellishment of cyan, highlights the pattern of Han culture, but the Manchu custom can not fall. Yamano Jun will be shocked by the entire historical city wall when I enter the Shenyang Imperial Palace.
