The peonies, arranged mainly in the Palace of Compassion and Tranquility, came from Heze in eastern China's Shandong Province, one of the major origins of peony flowers in the country since ancient times.

In the digital experience hall, technology brings visitors into an immersive setting of peony flowers.

The show is open to visitors with admission tickets to the Forbidden City for free till May 12.
