Part of the enormous Putuo Zongcheng Temple complex located in Chengde, China, the awe-inspiring Qianlong Tablet Pavilion can be accessed directly behind the front entrance.  The beauty of the copper and gold adornments are best enjoyed in full sun.  Built during the Qing dynasty, the Buddhist temple complex is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and continues to host local festivities to this day.
