The Tengwang Pavilion, Nanchang, China. Situated in the Jiangxi provincial capital of Nanchang—famed among Chinese for being the birthplace of the People's Liberation Army—Tengwang Ge (Tengwang Pavilion) is a majestic building looking over the Gan River to the west. Originally built in memory of a Tang prince over 1,000 years ago, the temple has been rebuilt no less than 26 times since then (darn termites!), the latest of these reconstructions taking place in 1989. Surrounded by rockeries, gardens, pavilions and ponds, the exterior of the building is as worthwhile to visit, if not more so, than the interior. Once you've had enough of the photogenic areas outside, head in to take a look at the displays on the six floors within.
