Located in Shenyang, capital of Liaoning Province, the Mukden Palace was the palace of the early Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) emperors before moving their capital to Beijing. It was built in 1625 and home to the first three Qing emperors.

The Mukden Palace was built to resemble the Forbidden City in Beijing. However, the palace also shows hints of Manchurian and Tibetan styles. The palace has now been converted into a museum conveniently called the Shenyang Palace Museum. The museum has more than 300 Manchu-style buildings, covering an area of 60,000 square meters, and boasts more than 10,000 relics. In 2004, it was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List as an extension of the Imperial Palace site, or the Forbidden City, in Beijing.[]
