BEIJING, April 5 (Xinhua) -- China's Palace Museum, also known as the Forbidden City, went live online Sunday after being closed for over 70 days amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The museum decided to stop admitting visitors from Jan. 25 to prevent cross-infection and curb the spreading of COVID-19.

Through the museum's website, the public can have a panoramic view of spring in the compound with curation from museum staff.

The year 2020 marks the 600th anniversary of the Forbidden City. The Palace Museum was built on the base of the former imperial compound in 1925.
