Halls are often used as entryways into an establishment or they may be special rooms within a building. As such there are many halls around the world associated with various tourist sites. These are some of the memorable halls we have encountered in our travels. Note that I have not included “city halls” in this series.
The halls I have listed in this post are all from Asia and are frequently entire buildings themselves. However, they still maintain the basic idea of “entryway” or “special room.”
Dusit Hall, Grand Palace, Bangkok, Thailand — This beautiful “hall,” along with its neighbor, straddle the Grand Palace, creating a lovely ensemble.
Hall of Longevity, Summer Palace, Beijing, China — This hall is one of the most prominent buildings on the Summer Palace grounds.
Hall of Heavenly Purity, Forbidden City, Beijing, China — This “hall” was being extensively restored when we visited in 2008.
