    It's been two days now. I'm guessing ImaLooser doesn't know the rule of confirmation, so I'll just continue:

    When my friend mentioned this landmark, the name was most alien to me. I didn't have a pen, so I made a mnemonic: "Toe tied". This turned out to be a wrong pronunciation.
    She also mentioned it was 350 km NE of of big city. This was also not very accurate, as it looks to be only 250 km away, and way more NNE than NE.

    My friend says that the wiki entry on how the town got it's name is totally bogus. The namesake man who died was not a general, but the town drunk. Imagine living in a town named after the town drunk, when it's original name was associated with royalty.

    Is it The Holy Resurrection Cathedral, Tutaev or Tutayev, Russia?

    I meant to apologise to Imalooser for not attributing a quote to him or her with a find (Punchbowl falls), in case I was wrong, and I'm pleased Om rectified that. (no hint)

    It looks like little baby Sydney Opera house beings, who've just woken up, and saying in unison; "Wow! A rectangle!"

    Not a clue.

    I’ll mention what I discovered about my last landmark-



    My landmark and hints were more repetitive than it seemed. That last landmark, the Assembly Building by Kahn that I gave had repetitive hints from another recent landmark I gave, The Salk Kahn Institute. I used the triangular ceiling etc., of the Kahn Building at Yale as hints for both Kahn landmarks, e.g. on this page-
    https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=270543&page=479 [Broken]

    But it turns out the last Kahn landmark, The National Assembly building by Kahn had already been a landmark, with Kahn related hints, before, from post no. 2934 -

    I must have missed the same landmark when it was offered years ago and wasn’t well when I checked.(no hint)

    This is another not very realistic image of the landmark-

    And it is difficult to tell there are things like an outdoor pool-

    "Trist", here, doesn’t refer to someone’s name.

    The images so far exclude the landscape at large and, as well, I don’t have a usable indoor image, but it could be something like this-

    Something occurred in time possibly somewhere around here.

    Although what has been shown of the landmark so far is recent in the area, it equates with older ideas, like those of form follows function, which have continued on in time, e.g., an internal pool wall takes on oscillating shape like this wall-

    Some landscape images-

    The area can be covered in snow around Dec 25, and there are trees close to the landmark.

    (Edit: deleted a pink rose.)
