Imperial Palace (aka Forbidden City)

Many much photos on this post!

The more little guys are along the roof edge, the more important the building is. The first one in the front is counted, but the last one (the big one) is not. The most any building in all of China can have is 11, which gives this building in the Forbidden City the most significance.
