This and the Jianlou Gate, in the background, are referred to collectively as Qianmen, "front gate."
The Gate Of Heavenly Peace (Tian An Men) of the Forbidden City

Tour groups gather before entering the Meridian Gate.
Groups from the countryside identify themselves by baseball caps of the same color.
We join the other groups to enter the Meridian Gate and tour the Forbidden City Palace Museum, which our photo tour will view next.
