The antique architecture is fine, and I enjoyed the elaborate unpainted woodwork of the interiors. It isn't a mausoleum in the Western sense, but a kind of temple complex. The landscaping impressed me more than the architecture. The small lake has an elegant viewing pavilion, and in June and July the lotus must be splendid (there were few flowers and the leaves were turning brown when I was there in August).
