Imperial gardens of the Tang Dynasty!
 
Architecture of the Tang Dynasty
http://english.cri.cn/1702/2005-2-18/14@207619.htm

The Tang dynasty (618-907) was an age of social, economic and cultural prosperity in China's feudal society. It was also a time of growth for architecture and the arts. The architecture of this period is grand with integral layouts.

The Tang capital city of Chang-an (today's Xi‘an) and the east capital Luoyang both have huge palaces, gardens, and government offices with well-organized layouts. Chang-an was the grandest city of the world at that time, and its layout was also the most formatted of all the ancient Chinese capitals. The Daminggong of the emperor palace in Changan, for instance, was very majestic. Its site occupied an area more than three times that of the Forbidden City of the Ming and Qing dynasties.

The Tang timberwork unified art and structural formation. Dugongs (a system of brackets in Chinese building, wooden square blocks inserted between the top of a column and a crossbeam), pillars and girders combined perfectly for strength and aesthetics. They looked simple, but grand with concise bright colors. The main hall of the Feguangsi Buddhist Temple on the Wutai Mountain in Northern China's Shanxi province is a typical example of this construction.

Brick and stone buildings were also further developed during this time. Most Buddhist Towers were made of these materials, including the Dayanta and Xiaoyanta Tower in Xian, and the Qianlixun Tower in Dali.

Fascinating. Thank you for the photo thread.

SD_Phil May 24, 2010 11:43 PM

Neat idea for a thread!

How much of what we see in the photos is original (as opposed to reconstructed)? Those buildings would look amazing for being 1400 years old!

Lhasaguy May 24, 2010 11:59 PM

Thankyou xiexie,yes they are reconstructed!

It was an amazing place to stay at. When I was there the German Chancellor and the Chinese president were also there.

really beautiful, thanks for the photos. I will need to come look at these in more detail later.

In that photo with the gold statue (of the emperor?) what is the terrain layout map he is looking over?

I think he was looking at the whole city of Chang-An?

Stunning. And the lights make it look even more impressive at night.

Thanks for the comment!

how much are these gardens and structures based on actual archaeological evidence and how much of it is extrapolation?

"Early 8th century murals in Prince Yide's tomb give an idea of the magnificence of Chang'an's city walls with their towering gate and corner towers.
