Out in Katy, Texas was a place called the Forbidden Gardens... They closed it to make way for the Grand Parkway construction project. I got lucky and got to see it (the weather was treacherous that week) only days before they closed.
The place had four main exhibits according to their brochure: Exhibit #1 - The Terra Cotta Army of the First Emperor Exhibit #2 - The Weapons Room Exhibit #3 - Calming of the Heart Lodge (The Summer Palace) Exhibit #4 - The Forbidden City
I regret not framing the full characters of the settings in the model towns, rather just the English descriptions.
Be sure and try the slideshow!
