China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

The Palace Mu­seum in cen­tral Bei­jing has started key restora­tion work by tak­ing down mod­ern build­ings in or­der to re­cover its orig­i­nal look.

A to­tal of 14,800-square-meter mod­ern struc­tures, scat­tered in dif­fer­ent ar­eas of the an­cient build­ing com­plexes, will be grad­u­ally taken down and the pro­ject is ex­pected to be fin­ished in the first half of next year, said the mu­seum.

The Palace Mu­seum is lo­cated in the For­bid­den City, which was the imperial palace of 24 em­per­ors dur­ing the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dy­nas­ties, un­til the end of Chi­nese imperial his­tory.
