This is one of the corner tower of Forbidden city in Beijing.
According to China travel website, Corner towers on the four coigns of lofty walls were established in 1420, rebuilt in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). As one part of the Forbidden City, they served as the defense facility just as the lofty walls, the gate towers and the moat. The corner towers rest on the base with Buddist-style building surrounded with stone columns.
Thanks for looking. Comments and critiques are welcome.

Hello Jasmine, welcome to TE,I hope you enjoy the experience.
I like the position from which you have taken this shot as it shows both sides of the tower,this helps to give the photo depth and perspective.
The reflections in the water are most charming and the whole picture suitably sharp.
Best wishes Les.

Welcome to TE!
This is a lovely and elegant composition with superb depth and perspective, marvellous lighting, colours and atmosphere. Clarity is excellent, I like very much the precision of the wonderful reflections and the fading of the colours at the distance. A wonderful picture, well done and thank you!
All the best,

Ni hao, Jasmine,
Wow! Attractive composition, perfect sharpness! I was here in 2007, and Gugong was the first place where I've been. I like this reflection. TFS!

great reflections. At first I thought that it was a lake but now I am realizing that it must be rain..
Very well taken. My compliments

Such a sense of solitude and calm that you have captured here. The mist and reflection added to the colour and the beautiful architecture make this a very special picture indeed.

A little trip back to your home country !
What a beautiful composition of this corner tower of the forbidden city !
You placed it perfectly on the left of the photo, with its great reflection in the water !
I wonder what the water is ? Is it a river or a lake ?
I also love the moody atmosphere in the misty weather
