Yup...been there, so thank you for the reminder, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Happy to remind you, Ray.
I've not been, Tom, so thanks for the pic'. smile
Tom Wilson: Put it on your bucket list, Frank smile
it is imposing in its presence but perhaps not as vividly decorated as some other structures seen elsewhere, Tom.
Tom Wilson: It is certainly a big space!
I guess it's not so forbidden... smile
Nice shot of this place, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Yes - no longer forbidden!
LOL at Elizabeth. Not everyone got the memo, I guess?
Tom Wilson: He, he smile

My daughter worked in Beijing for 6 months, but I will probably never go there. Juts not on the list.
Tom Wilson: It's certainly worth a visit - I was there with a British Council visit.

A forbidden colour border too Tom.
Tom Wilson: It was an accident, but I rather like it smile
I imagine it is even more impressive actually being there, although I suspect it is fileld with hoards of visitors in these modern times.
Tom Wilson: I think it will be pretty busy in the tourist season!
Great scan, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Mary.
I have just read a Peter May novel set in Beijing this must be a fascinating place to see
