Golden Palace in Wudang Mountains, Hubei,World Heritage
Hubei Province

The Wudang Mountains also known as Wu Tang Shan or simply Wudang, are a small mountain range in the Hubei province of China, just to the south of the manufacturing city of Shiyan. The monasteries and buildings were made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994.

 The Golden Hall (Jindian or Jinding), situated at the top of Tianzhu Peak (1612m), is one of the most distinctive landmarks in Wudangshan. Built entirely of gilded copper (an incredible 20 tons of fine copper, and 300 kilograms of gold), the hall is one of the biggest gilded copper temples in China.

    Too bad the photo is reversed; all the script is mirror-backwards. Otherwise, gorgeous, obviously.
