World's largest palace rebuilt in Hengdian, China.

Over much controversy a private developer is re-building a Beijing palace over 1,000 km from the original site in eastern China. The Old Summer Palace was the larger sister of the Forbidden City (the Winter Palace, currently the world's largest palace complex), and was looted and burned down by British, French and American troops in 1860 - so large it took 3 days to be destroyed by 3,500 troops (the new palace that replaced it in another location was again destroyed in 1900), with many treasures now gracing European palaces and museums.
A painful chapter in Chinese history, the ruins - including the largest gardens in the world - was kept as atmospheric ruins as a lesson to history, and the rebuilding is one of great controversy.

The palace was originally made up of hundreds of pavilions set into myriad lakes and islands.





The first phase is now completed. It is estimated to cost $5 billion, even with China's cheap labour.

Great Hall of the People, Chongqing, 1954.

This is kind of a glimpse of what China might have looked like in the 19th Century without continuous civil wars. Only a few grand buildings were built in that time, in Beijing.
