(ECNS) -- The "Imperial Inspection of Emperors of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911)" exhibition premiered on Monday at northeast China's Shenyang Palace Museum.
Although busy with state affairs, these emperors would not skip the ritual of paying visits to their hometown to pay their respects to ancestors and visit relatives.
Acousto-optic technology was used throughout the exhibition to help visitors better understand the inspection rituals.
The inspection routine started from Emperor Kangxi (1654-1722), and four emperors of the Qing Dynasty came back returning to Liaoning to hold memorial ceremonies for their predecessors in the upcoming 160 years.
The inspection of the place of origin of the dynasty would warn successive emperors and their offspring to comprehend the hardships experienced by their predecessors. Kangxi's excellence in martial arts was fully demonstrated during his inspections outside in the wild.
The animation inside the exhibition hall displaying Kangxi "shooting a tiger by a stream" shows the emperor's valiance.
Shenyang Palace Museum used to be the imperial palace in the northward regions to the Great Wall.
A bulk of imperial treasures were left here in Shenyang Palace Museum.
The ten inspections to Shenyang endowed the city with high political and cultural significance.
They also boosted the development of China's northeast regions.
