Telegraph: Chinese man builds ‘mountain palace’ on Beijing roof

The property even has a rocky mountain garden, complete with rubble and shrubbery

A Chinese man is believed to have illegally built an astonishing rooftop palace on the top of a residential building in Beijing.

According to a report in The Beijing Morning Post, the bizarre two-storey edifice – which looks like it has been carved from a mountainside – was constructed by a man known only as Professor Zhang on the top of a suburban apartment block.

The professor is said to have spent over six years building his home, after knocking down the penthouse he bought on the 26th floor in 2007. The property even has a rocky mountain garden, complete with rubble and shrubbery.
