The Tiananmen Square architectural design

I simply love to look at any building with its architectural designs. Here at Tiananmen Square, there are aplenty of beautiful structures.

  5. I can't remember what is the hole for, but I remember the tour guide did brief something about it... and the lotus with mandarin ducks bring good relationship to couples!^-^

  6. the hole representing the sun? not sure...

    the first two designs remind me of the carvings in chinese mosques... they have these similar lobed frames, yet within are islamic calligraphy.
