The Forbidden city was imperial palace in early ages (1368-1911) for the 24 emperors of Ming and Qing dynasties. This palace was first built throughout fourteen years during the reign of emperor Chengdu in the Ming dynasty (1368-1644). There was no entry for public without special permission from the emperor so it was called Forbidden City and now the name of this place is "The Palace Museum".
