"The whole palace complex is built along a central axis, the asis of the world, everything in the four directions suspended from this central point represented by these palaces." - Jeffrey Riegel
More on this on Wikipedia:

The Forbidden City is one of the Wonders in Civilization VI.

Notes[ | ]

  • Must be built on flat land adjacent to the City Center.
  • The +1 Wildcard Policy Slot is only added at time of construction. Capturing this wonder does not award an additional policy slot. This is both before and after the Fall 2016 Patch and appears to be intentional.

Trivia[ | ]

  • The Forbidden City is a very versatile wonder, appropriate for almost all empires. It has flexible placement, being able to be built in almost any city, and provides a wildcard policy slot that can be used to further any play style.
