The Palace Museum in Beijing, also known as the Forbidden City, opened its northern city wall for the first time to the public on Thursday.

The newly opened section, some 200 meters long, includes two wings accessible from the Shenwumen or Gate of Divine Might, which is a large structure that serves as the northern gate of the Forbidden City. The two northern turrets still remain closed.

Wooden planks have been placed along the top of the wall to protect the ancient bricks and fences have been installed on either side for visitors' safety.
