When the Mongols established the Yuan Dynasty saw advancements in the arts as well as an influx of cartography, foods, and knowledge from the Muslim world.
The Mongols even unified the Mongol way of writing with the Chinese way of writing.
Kublai Khan slowly adopted Chinese political structures and political theories.
Forbidden City contained elements of Arabic, Mongolian, western Asian, and Chinese architectural styles
This aloofness from the Chinese exemplified by the Forbidden City was carried over into almost every other aspect of Mongolian rule. Although they adopted some aspects of Chinese culture, the Mongols pretty much refused to learn the Chinese language
During the T'ang dynasty, the Emperor had slowly become an absolute ruler; Kublai Khan finished that process and made the Emperorship absolutely autocratic.Kublai Khan established his capital at Beijing and built a magnificent palace complex for himself, the Forbidden City.
