Shānshǎngān Guild Hall information
This tiny, elaborately styled guild hall was built as a lodging and meeting place during the Qing dynasty by an association of merchants from Shānxi (山西), Shǎnxi (陕西; Shaanxi) and Gānsù (甘肃) provinces. Note the ornate carvings on the roofs, and delve into the exhibition on historic Kāifēng. Check out the fascinating diorama of the old Song city – with its palace in the centre of town – and compare it with a model of modern Kāifēng.
