Three Pagodas in Dali, Yunnan - CHINA - UNESCO TENTATIVE
Another postcard with a beautiful water reflection photography (one of my favorite type of landscapes) showing another site submitted to UNESCO as a tentative WHS, this time from China. The Three Pagodas of Chongsheng Temple in Dali are a ensemble of three towers (9th century AD) arranged on the corners of an equilateral triangle that face the west shore of the Erhai Lake. Thank you very much Chen, judging by this picture it's easy for me to believe that you find it beautiful when you visited the site last year. This postcard took 15 days to arrive!
The Cangshan Mountain and Erhai Lake are located in the western Yunnan province within the Cangshan Mountain and Erhai lake scenic spot of 960 square kilometers. In the scenic spot there are an ancient town and pretty and lofty Cangshan Mountain and Erhai lake which is as bright and beautiful as a mirror. There are also more than 100 scenic spot in the are such as Chongshengsi Three Pagodas in Dali, Dehua Tablet of the Nanzhao Kingdom or Shibaoshan Grottoes of the Nanzhao Kingdom.
