Foxiangge of the Summer Palace, Beijing

"The Foxiangge [Tower of Buddhist Incense] is the largest structure in the Summer Palace and one of the masterpieces of architecture.  The eight-facade tower is 41 meters high [approx.. 135 ft] with three stories and four tiers of eaves.  It is the very center of the whole garden."

This card arrived from China on June 30.  The sender says she has visited the Summer Palace three times and has enjoyed learning about how the Chinese emperors lived.
