Rest Honorable Eunuch, Rest

Rest Honorable Eunuch, Rest.

Near the Forbidden City in Beijing is this beautiful old building originally intended to house a Buddhist shrine. Later, the site was turned into a retirement home for loyal eunuchs who had faithfully served the emperor in the next palace over. Well done loyal servant!
