I love Chinese history

I just read something very interesting about the Chinese ancient architecture. Has anyone gone to see the Forbidden City in Beijing? It's huge, isn't it? Well, there is a palace during the Tang Dynasty (618-907BC) that is 4.5x bigger than the forbidden city. Called the Daming Palace (Palace of Great Brilliance) it was once considered to be the largest palace complex in the world. Unfortunately, it was burned down by peasants so what's left today is the palace ground ruins. I mean 4.5x the size of the Forbidden City, the Chinese really know how to show off back then.
