The Mei-ling Palace Of Nanjing Looks Like A Giant Necklace

The Mei-ling Palace, located on the top of Xiaohong Hill in eastern Nanjing city, was once the home of China's former president Chiang Kai-shek and his wife Soong Mayling before they fled to Taiwan in 1949 at the end of the Chinese civil war.

For decades, the building was kept as a state guesthouse and closed to the public until two years ago, when Mei-ling Palace was renovated and its doors thrown open to the public. From the air, the house resembles a giant emerald and the landscaping around it looks like a pendant and necklace.
