The Daming Palace was one of the great palaces of the Tang Dynasty capital, built in 662AD. Just about nothing remains today, and the huge site serves as a heritage site. The main structure is a large sandstone coloured musuem at the edge of a huge square, which is largely empty, and used by cyclists and kite flyers on the afternoon I visited. Another building housed a cineplex showing commercial iMax movies and 3D screenings of a short story movie about the Daming Palace. The movie was well made although probably more fictional than historical but serves to show the splendor of the palace in it's heyday.
The museum itself housed some sandstone ruins and a miniature model of the palace, but little else. The movie and museum requires a fee but has little of interest to the casual tourist looking for great photo opportunities or sights.
