At the mere mention of a civilization, we invariable call to mind those monumental buildings that are characteristic of it. At the mere mention of the Chinese civilization, we invariably call to mind the Great War, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace that highlight its unique magnificence and beauty. Great buildings, without exception, mirror the history of a nation one way or another, and bring to light its cultural features. Traditional Chinese buildings represent one of the three great schools of architectural art, which is as important sa the European and Islamic schools. This book provides you with a glimpse of traditional Chinese buildings – palace structures, tombs, mausoleums, gardens, residential buildings and religious structures. Read this book and you’ll get closer to the kind of cultural environment in which the Chinese have lived over the millenniums.
