The Temple Hotel in Beijing

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Yvette Tang, Flora Lau and I went for a tea at the Temple Hotel, it is located on the temple grounds. The history goes back 600 years. While you still feel the history inside the rooms, there are contemporary conveniences and the  furniture in both the High & Lofty and Dragon & Phoenix guest rooms, is designed by  Sandeep Sangaru from Bangalore, India.
