Introduction: Constructed on the foundation of the North Granary of the Yuan Dynasty in 1409, the Imperial Granary is even 10 years older than the Imperial Palace. It combines cultural heritage with commercial functions, serving as a perfect venue for performances, parties, sale of music disks and books, coffee, tea, drink, and food.
