The Red Palace - Photo Flashback

This photo is another from a past trip that has brought back a flood of memories of my experiences.

I'm sure the architechtural style gives away the region where this site is located.  But can you name the specific location?  This is in a large city with lots of sites to see.  This particular spot is worth a visit, but its not at the top of most lists.  It is a bit unique since many similar places in this area are no longer standing.   




Where was this photo taken, what is this called, and what is the story behind this unique location?

Have you visited there?

This is part of a "photo flashback" series of photos I'm sharing from my travels through the years. I hope readers will enjoy the 'tour' as much as I have enjoyed reminiscing about the trip where I took this photo.



I guess I stumped everyone with this photo.  This is the Yonghe Temple (aka the Lama Temple) in Beijing.  It is one of the largest Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in the world.  Construction of the temple began in 1694.  There are countless sites in Beijing, this one isn't as commonly visited as some others, but its a nice calm place in the middle of a bustling metropolis.

Both responses have the correct city, but not the right location.
