Imperial Gardens of the Tang Dynasty China

Architecture of the Tang Dynasty
http://english.cri.cn/1702/2005-2-18/[email protected]

The Tang dynasty (618-907) was an age of social, economic and cultural prosperity in China's feudal society. It was also a time of growth for architecture and the arts. The architecture of this period is grand with integral layouts.

The Tang capital city of Chang-an (today's Xi‘an) and the east capital Luoyang both have huge palaces, gardens, and government offices with well-organized layouts. Chang-an was the grandest city of the world at that time, and its layout was also the most formatted of all the ancient Chinese capitals. The Daminggong of the emperor palace in Changan, for instance, was very majestic. Its site occupied an area more than three times that of the Forbidden City of the Ming and Qing dynasties.

The Tang timberwork unified art and structural formation. Dugongs (a system of brackets in Chinese building, wooden square blocks inserted between the top of a column and a crossbeam), pillars and girders combined perfectly for strength and aesthetics. They looked simple, but grand with concise bright colors. The main hall of the Feguangsi Buddhist Temple on the Wutai Mountain in Northern China's Shanxi province is a typical example of this construction.

Brick and stone buildings were also further developed during this time. Most Buddhist Towers were made of these materials, including the Dayanta and Xiaoyanta Tower in Xian, and the Qianlixun Tower in Dali.

YAY! Tang Dynasty is my most favorite of all in Chinese history.

Wasn't Chang-an also the most populated city in the world during the Tang?

The best preserved imperial gardens in Beijing. Opened to the public in 1928, it has been under the protection of the state since 2001. Jingshan offers a privileged insight into life in the Chinese capital.The imperial gardens were elegant resorts for all forms of entertainment. Rapid developments in Chinese society, the economy and the arts lent great impetus to the construction of elaborate and elegant imperial parks.

I went there 2 years ago but I found it not very interesting and...fake!. I prefer the atmosphere of 曲江 (yes fake too but far better especially at sunset) or the old and beautiful 大雁塔, my favourite places in Xian. 我很想西安...那么亲切的人,那么好吃的菜,那么可爱的姑娘!

你们好, 这里的唐朝建筑的照片真美!

请问这些建筑是以前的还是现在复制的?要是是复制的,那是依照原本的建筑吗?

自我看来,唐朝建筑跟秦汉建筑差不多呀?有哪位了解古代建筑请给在下请教?
