In 1987, the palace was declared a World Heritage Site and is currently listed by UNESCO as the largest accumulation of preserved ancient wooden structures in the world.

The Forbidden City is traditionally divided into two regions: the Outer Court and the Inner Court. The Outer Court that was used for ceremonial purposes comprised the southern sections. The Inner Court or Back Palace that includes the northern sections was the residence of the Emperor and his family.
