Yi Tai Study Hall

Yi Tai Study Hall

Kam Tin, Hong Kong view map

In about 1850, the Yi Tai Study Hall (Study Hall of Two Immortals)
was originally built to accommodate the two immortals,
Man Cheong (literary god) and Kwan Tai (martial god).
However, the plan was changed by a group of 16 local scholar-gentry.
They formed a society “The Tang Society of the Two Immortals” and
built it as a study hall for the Tangs’ children.

Excellent perspective, love all the stone and masonry work. It sure is nice to see since nowadays they hardly use it in these type of buildings :-)
