At the mere mention of a civilization, we invariably call to mind those monumental buildings that are characteristic of it. At the mere mention of the Chinese civilization, we invariably call to mind the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace that highlight its unique magnificence and beauty. Great buildings without exceptions, mirror the history of a nation one way or another, and bring to light its cultural features.
