Shānshǎngān Guild Hall information
Here’s proof that good things come in small packages. The tiny, elaborately styled guild hall was built as a lodging and meeting place during the Qing dynasty by an association of merchants from Shānxi, Shǎnxi (Shaanxi) and Gānsù provinces. Note the ornate carvings on the roofs, and delve into the exhibition on historic Kāifēng.
