Puppet Emperor's Palace

Puppet Emperor's Palace Puppet Emperor's Palace

Located at northeastern part of Changchun City, the palace covers 120,000 square meters. It was the palace of Puyi, the emperor of Qing Dynasty. In 1908, at age two, Puyi became the 10th Qing emperor. His reign lasted just over three years, but he was allowed to remain in the Forbidden City until 1924. Subsequently, he lived in Tianjin until 1932, when the Japanese installed him at this palace as the 'puppet emperor' of Manchukuo. After Japan's defeat in 1945, Puyi was captured by Russian troops. In 1950 he was returned to China, where he spent 10 years in a re-education camp before ending his days as a gardener in Beijing. Puyi died in 1967

The palace consists of the inner and outer courts, with the former as the living quarters for Puyi and his family, while the latter was where he conducted his political activities.

Puyi's study, bedroom and temple, as well as his wife's quarters (including her opium den) and his concubine's rooms, have all been elaborately re-created. His American car is also on display, but it's the exhibition on his extraordinary life, which has a large collection of photos, that is most enthralling.

In addition there are waxen statues mirroring historical figures in the palace to help people understand the puppet emperor's political and daily life. Now it has become a national excellent base of patriotic education and national AAAA scenic spot.
