Photographer's Note

The residence was first built in 1382 and follows the general layout of Ming Dynasty palaces, bearing a resemblance to the Forbidden City. The buildings, however, are influenced by Nakhi and Tibetan architectural styles. The residence was severely damaged by wars during the Qing Dynasty and what stands today was built from 1996-99. Apparently it is a faithful reproduction of the original. The Mu Family Mansion isnít a particularly fascinating complex compared to similar places in China, but it does boast some lovely gardens.
