Qing Hui Yuan 清暉園

Qing Hui Yuan 清暉園
清暉園, or Qing Hui Yuan in Mandarin/ Putonghua Chinese, means Garden of Pure Splendour. It was built or expanded in the early 1600s by an intellect who had passed the admission examination to gain a position in the high office of the government. Back then, only very few people were educated and smart enough to pass the examination.

After becoming the high official, the gentleman had this manor built to become his residence.

It has long been known as the Four Most Beautiful Manor Houses in all of Southern China, and one of the Ten Most Important in all of China.
