Puppet Emperor's Palace

Puppet Emperor's Palace

Written by Kelly PangUpdated Dec. 22, 2022

Puppet Emperor's Palace was the residence of the last emperor in the Qing Dynasty- Puyi when he ruled the state as a puppet of the occupying Japanese.

It bears the witness of the history that Japanese Imperialism took the northeast of China by force and carried out fascist colonial rule. Now it has become an important tourist scenic spot and a base of patriotism education.

 The main body is a set of two-storied buildings covered with yellow glazed tiles, including Qinming Building, Jixi Building and Tongde Palace. These three buildings are with a unique style combined with Chinese and Western architectural features.

The palace can be separated into two parts: the outer palace is a place for political activities and the inner palace is a place for daily life. Now they are museums of antiquities.

The outer palace is consisted of Qinmin Building, Huaiyuan Building and Jiale Palace, a place for Puyi to deal with government affairs. Besides, there are gardens, rockeries, fishponds, a swimming pool, a golf course, a tennis court, a racecourse, a painting and calligraphy library and other attached places.

 The inner palace is a daily life region of Puyi and his relatives. Jixi Building is the residence of Puyi and his empress Wanrong; Tongde Palace is the residence of "Fu" Guiren; besides, there are some entertainment facilities. Now the inner part has become Jinlin Museum, exhibiting historical materials of Gaogouli, Bohai, the Liao Dynasty and the Jin Dynasty.
