Their first impressions of the museum, details of the buildings and vivid scenes during the diplomats' visits were spotlighted in three sections of the photo exhibition.

The photography of the museum helped the diplomats develop a thoughtful exploration into the ancient architectural complex, breaking through national boundaries of time and space, and colliding with a new vitality.

The exhibition will also be available on the museum’s official website, WeChat account, and Weibo account.

The Palace Museum, also known as the Forbidden City, is the world's largest remaining architectural compound made of wood and also generally represents the pinnacle of ancient Chinese architecture.

It was China's imperial palace from 1420 to 1911.
