Now that you mention the orientation of the Imperial palace in Kyoto, Beijing's forbidden city comes to mind as well. And the same holds true as you mention for antic 长安. I would however be inclined to believe that the orientation of houses and palaces is dictated by feng shui, which I remind you means literally wind/water (風水) because it's probably a better idea to have your entrance opened towards the south if the north wind brings rain inside. Which is possibly a reasonable (albeit practical rather than sacred) explanation for my question. Thanks for your help.
