  • 这个祠堂是广东各地陈氏合资建立的,既作为祠堂,也作为书院,还是会馆。总之功能多多,地方很大,好几重院落,很浓郁的岭南风格。很多砖雕木雕、各种壁画匾额,都很有趣。展览品大多都没什么意思,只有几个神龛什么的,跟风土人情相关,比较有趣。如果没人讲解,不大看得懂,走走就出来了。如果要弄懂每个细节,那一天都耗在里面了。排队人很多,票价便宜,所以黄牛票贵一倍,价格也没有显得特别高。有时间还是排队买票,便宜。懒...  read more »
  • Some very nice artefacts can be found within the temple, but I am mostly in love with the beautiful designs of the temple's exteriors as well as its interiors. The details are just amazing! 
  • Large complex of 19 buildings and rooms interspersed with small shorts. It is a Museum of works of Chinese traditional arts. We are bonsai, bronze statues, paintings du canvas and paper. What struck me most were the crests of the ridges etched pottery on the walls. It was the only place in China where we were approached by a guide, spoke to our wondering if its customers could know each other to make us some questions. Of course we accepted and after the ritual convenievoli the eldest son of this family filled us with questions. She wanted to know everything about us (we did the whole trip in three) and eventually became a geography lesson because they didn't know where it was the Italy. Anyway it was a nice experience and being in one of the beautiful gardens of the complex we felt rare people.
