Traditional Chinese architecture is one of the three major architectural systems in the world, the other two being European architecture and Islamic architecture. Be it a house or a mansion, a palace or a temple, a bridge or a tower...it never fails to show the effects of culture, history, politics, religion and society. Chinese Architecture, with elaborately selected and highly representative ancient Chinese architecture and hundreds of excellent pictures of ancient buildings, gives a vivid introduction to almost all aspects of Chinese architectural art and a detailed explanation of the cultural connotation behind different architectural forms.
