A kaleidoscope of color and reflections, the Forbidden City's reputation for mystery and beauty is enhanced after a summer storm hit Beijing on June 23, 2017. An imperial palace since the 15th century, it was the ceremonial and political center of Chinese government for 500 years. Since 1925, it's been home to the prestigious Palace Museum.
