Photographer's Note

Coal Hill is and artificial hill located at side of Forbidden City and it was built when the moats and artificial lakes near were created and the removed soil was stored in this area.
According with tradition each Chinese town should have a lake and a hill, and the houses should be protected by the hill from the north winds, this is why Forbidden City is located at south of this hill.
The top of the hill has five peaks, each one adorned with a pavilion and we have fabulous views of central Beijing around. The last Ming emperor committed suicide in the base of this hill when the area was surrounded by enemies.

A Colina do Carv緌 um monte artificial localizado perto da Cidade Proibida. Foi erguido depois que os fossos e lagos artificiais ao redor foram feitos, j que o solo removido foi acumulado ali. A colina tem cinco picos, cada um decorado com um pavilh緌. Ao redor temos vistas do centro de Pequim.
De acordo com a velha tradi誽o chinesa as cidades tem que ter um lago e uma colina e as casas devem estar protegidas atr嫳 dela para evitar os ventos do norte; n緌 por acaso a Cidade Proibida foi erguida ao sul desse monte.
O ltimo imperador da dinastia Ming se matou na base desse monte depois que se viu cercado de inimigos.
