Covered Walk-way, Summer Palace, Beijing

Built in 1750 it is purported to be the longest covered walk-way of its kind in the world. There are more than 14,000 different pictures painted on its beams and crossbeams. During Mao's Cultural Revolution the locals were ordered to destroy or permanently deface it, but they instead disguised it in whitewash which was removed after Mao died.
