For most visitors to China, sightseeing means a daily encounter with Chinese classical architecture of one type or another ranging from temples through gardens, mausoleums, pagodas, imperial palaces to residential houses.
Chinese buildings extensively use of timber as a building material in addition to bricks and tiles. That is because timber was not only easily available and transportable but also was very practical. Heavy posts are capable of carrying the roof while the wood could be carved for decoration and embellishment.
Pagodas are as much a part of Chinese scenery as churches are in England. Tall or low, massive or slender, pagodas dot China’s landscape as evidence of Buddhist influence on and merge with Chinese culture.
Garden building is considered a chief component of Chinese culture. The Chinese garden has a long history. It first appeared in the form of a hunting preserve for emperors and nobles in the 11th century B.C. during the Zhou Dynasty. During the Qin and Han dynasties, those natural preserves were made more beautiful and became places of recreation for imperial families.
