This landmark was built at the behest of someone who was also responsible for creating some other places that bare some similarities.

Correction: The person responsible for this landmark and the person responsible for those places that have similarities were members of the same family.

This landmark has mountains and a lake nearby.

Yippie!

I've been cursing at myself for not solving this puzzle every time I run across and interesting image. And of course, I can't remember which of these images in my head have, and haven't been played here yet. Argh!

Ah, nice one. It was not too difficult, I thought it was bonsai first but then the scale did not fit. But eventuall searching "forest building" did it.

I won't post a picture for the next one. But eventually the hints should lead to it.

First hint: The landmark consists mainly of a sphere and a obelisk-like structure next to it.

Second hint: "All science is either physics or stamp collecting."

As both a philatelist, and a science nerd, I know that stamp. Unfortunately, being old and confused, it will take me a while to find it in my brain. I am going to guess though, that it has something to do with Bucky-Balls.

Oh poop.

And after googling, I must retract any statements that I may have made above.

Sorry Om, that Bucky Balls thing doesn't seem to help at all. But a scientific philatelist may have a small edge here.

next hint: it could very well be that no Nobel laureate ever visited the landmark.

Tuva.

I'm so glad it's Fat Tuesday.

I did not know it was Fat Tuesday, until, I saw all the beads this afternoon.

Right of course, the quest for Tannu Tuva

Oh yes,

Feynman never managed to get to Tuva. Instead of him, the trip was realized by his daughter Michelle. Michelle Feynman came to Tuva on June 8, 2009.
Also:



The story:



It's the center of Asia monument.

I seem to remember you using your signature as a clue in the past.
Wasn't it Bertrand Russell?

But I recognized Feynman's bongo drumming style instantly. So the most important hint was not necessary, for me anyways.

And now that I've watched your video, which I've watched previously at least 3 times, I am late for work, and request that you continue with a new landmark.
