A police spokesman said that the elaborate temple-like structure is built illegally on the roof. The temple on top of the building has been there for at least three years.

A wealthy physician in Beijing was given 15 days to tear down his illegal villa and garden built atop a 26-storey apartment block on August 12.

It is now being removed.
