Interesting.  Is the temple of heaven a pagoda?   What is the difference?.........

It is like a pagoda, but I bet technically it
Isn't?  I'm no expert on Asian architecture.

However, without looking into it, I don't recall
Exactly where in the complex, it may even be the
wall surrounding the TOH, but there are walls there
that are curved in such a way, that you and a pal
might stand 100 meters away from each other whilst
carrying on a conversation in a very soft voice.

Dr. Sun Yat Sen's tomb in Nanjing is very cool too,
maybe someday I can take some of you and
Show you it's "secret".

If and when I visit China, the Temple of Heaven will be first on the list.  A person could spend a lot of time over there to see all the sites related to coins.  China is huge w/ a interesting history.   Would like to see Dr. Sun Yet Sen's tomb too........

Groupon is offering a great deal to visit china on the cheap with luxury accommodations and airfare included for $1200.  If you decide to impulse buy, pick September-October or March-April dates, because it is too cold in Beijing during the winter.

Peter, members here have told me the Temple of Heaven on the reverse of all pandas was designed by Feng Yunming.    What is your opinion?......
