Chen Clan's Ancestral Hall

Historic Building in Kincheng

An ancestral hall built in the early 1900s by the largest clan in Kinmen, the Chens, to honour their ancestors who made their way here from Fujian and endured much hardship in the early days. Members of the clan from as far away as Southeast Asia pitched in to help finance its subsequent restorations, the latest of which took place in 2016. The two-courtyard structure is not large, but stately with attractive wood and stone carvings.
