A beautiful temple near the Forbidden City in Beijing.
From China 2012
I'm still going through photos that friends and I took in China, including these of the Forbidden City in Beijing. Built in the 15th century, it was the imperial palace compound from the Ming to the end of the Qing Dynasties. Extraordinary!
