Rites are represented through architectural details. For example, only the Hall of Supreme Harmony (Taihe Dian), the palace’s highest-status building, where the most important ceremonies took place, can have 10 deified creatures as ornaments on the roof. The fewer the roof ornaments, the lower the building’s rank.

For people who cannot visit in person, the Palace Museum has developed its internet presence to maintain links with the public and take advantage of the digitization and digital communication work carried out on its collections.
