Xumi Fushou Temple, Chengde, China (UNESCO)

Jery sent me this awesome postcard for the Postcrossing Favourites Tag. It shows Xumi Fushou Temple in Chengde and is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site -Mountain Resort and its Outlying Temples - inscribed in 1994. The Mountain Resort is the Quin Dynasty's summer palace in Hebei province and was built in the 18th century. Xumi Fushou is the temple of Happiness and Longevity and is one of the Eight Outer Temples.
