Chinese Cultural Center…part 2

Here is another view of the cultural center. This is called a Moon Gate which is a scenic window usually located in a traditional Chinese garden to separate elements of the garden.


The small photo is the reflection of the buildings in the beautiful pond located in front of the property. If you click on it, you will be able to see the outline of the building, lily pads, and a huge goldfish in the foreground.

I could be mistaken, but I think that the Chinese Cultural Center is owned by the (mainland) Chinese government.

Lovely shots! I had no idea the circular 'windows' are called Moon Gates. I've only seen one on a chinese temple in Burma, at Amarapura.
