The 17th century Potala Palace in Lhasa (Tibet, China) is one of the most beautiful older buildings in the world (image by Coolmanjackey CC BY-SA 3.0). The linked article gives a detailed overview of the site, including interesting comparisons of its lay-out with other famous landmarks like Stonehenge and the Hagia Sophia. I found it a very interesting read.
