Thai Hoa Palace Tours

Thai Hoa Palace
Situated in the Forbidden City, just inside the Citadel’s entryway, this palace was constructed in 1805 and first used for the emperor’s coronation in 1806.  It later served as the meeting place between royalty and commoners, as well as for signing ceremonies and announcements of new laws. Visitors can cross the Trung Dao Bridge, over Thai Dich pond, into the Great Rites Court, where the emperor once received foreign ambassadors and conducted important international meetings. Stand at the exact center of the palace, where the royal throne was placed—and hear whispers from anywhere in the building, just as the emperor did when he held court.

Practical Info:

Don’t miss the historical film shown near the rear of the palace. It brings to life the structure’s history, restoration and use. Because photography is not allowed, pictures can only be taken outside palace gates.
