The Hill of Accumulated Elegance was my favorite part of the Forbidden City in the heart of Beijing, China. Home to many emperors and their concubines (which could number in the thousands), Beijing’s Forbidden City is the largest palace grounds in the world complete with hundreds of buildings and a beautiful gardens in which the Hill of Accumulated Elegance stands.
