如意门匾额 plaque above Ruyi gate

如意门为养心殿后围墙西侧的随墙小门,前往西六宫的要道。仰望匾额发呆,这么重要的一块匾额,几根铁丝就挂上了,这有违皇家规制!

Ruyi gate is a small door on the west side of the wall behind the Hall of Mental Cultivation (养心殿: Yang Xin Dian), which is on the way to the Six Western Palaces (西六宫). Staring up at the plaque, such an important piece of plaque was only hung there by a few rusty wires. It’s against royal regulations!
