Palace of Earthly Tranquility, also called Kunninggong, was the private residence of the empresses during the Ming and early Qing Dynasty.

Later Palace of Earthly Tranquility was divided into two parts: the west chamber for sacrificial ceremony. The table and the big vats were used for sacrifices to the God of the Kitchen. The east chamber used as the wedding chamber, which is entirely painted in red, symbolizing "happiness". According to tradition, the emperor and the empress stayed here for two nights and then resided in their living quarters.

A total of 5.5 million taels of silver was spent on the wedding of Emperor Guangxu.
Puyi, the last Qing emperor, also got married in the Palace of Earthly Tranquility .
