Every part of the world has its own flavor when it comes to style of architecture that it houses, and China (2nd largest economy in the world) is no exception in this regard. It has its own style of architecture which is one among the oldest architecture styles that we have seen so far. All the images that are shared in this thread clearly depicts the architecture grandness of China. I would like to thank all contributors of this post.

that's too bad! I don't understand why every other country in the world today just has to build similar looking houses and buildings! The world is turning into a very boring place!
