Views of the World, Imperial Mausoleum Mukden, Manchuria

It's time to return to The Views of the World postcard collection.  I promise, done by the new year.

Manchuria is an area in northeast China.  Mukden, now known as Shenyang, was the imperial seat of the Qing Dynasty.  The imeprial mausoleum is in Dongling Park, and is the final resting place of Nurlach and Xiaoci Gao Yehenala, Emperor and Empress of Manchuria from 1559-1626.  Nice stone elephant.
