Located at King Yin Lane, 45 Stubbs Road, Hong Kong, the total area is approximately 4,910 square meters. Jingxianli was originally called "Xilu", and was built in 1937 by the famous Yin Shang Cen Richu and Cen Li Baolin in Xinhui, Guangdong. Jingxianli is a well-preserved Lingnan mansion in South China in the 1930s. The plan of the main building follows the traditional Lingnan three-in-one courtyard layout, that is, the main house plus two wings, the door faces south, and the south side is built with a wall to form an inner courtyard. The difference from traditional buildings is that the two wings are slightly open, allowing the inner courtyard to be expanded.
Take Bus No. 15 at the Central Ferry Pier or the Exchange Square bus stop downstairs in Ifc, get off at Song Bai Xincun, and walk a few steps forward to King Yin Lane. However, Jingxianli is not open for visitors most of the time, so I can only take a look at the former mansion from a distance and cannot enter the interior. Jingxianli was built in 1937 and was originally called Xilu. This is a private mansion that combines Chinese and Western architectural design. It is very rare in Hong Kong. It reflects the increasing wealth and status of the Chinese society at that time, because it can be in the middle of the mountain. There is such a big house that ordinary people can not own.
Remember the "Jinghua Spring Dream"? Jin Zhenxi and He Yanqiu (Liu Songren & Wang Mingquan) in the play are, in modern terms, Jin Yanxi and Leng Qingqiu of the "family of gold powder". The mansion in the play-Jingxianli. For a hundred years, mid-levels on Hong Kong Island have been places where wealthy people live, but this is the only existing house like King Yin Lei~ Want to visit? Difficult! Only a few days a year are open for the public to visit, and one or two months in advance have to go to grab tickets. Regrettably, today’s weather is just like the age and the fate of the family in the play-the mountains and rain are coming to the wind.
The hills and hilltops of Hong Kong have always felt like the rich people. They don't worry about traffic, because there are drivers or sedan chairmen in and out, and they just like to stand tall and see far. Jingxianli is such a Chinese and Western-style combination of private mansion, built in 1937. Before not knowing the history of Jingxianli, just looked at its appearance, mistakenly thought that this is a temple, Jingxianli has such a grand feeling.
From Situ pull road viewing platform ready to go down, walking, right hand side of the high-rise up, and left hand under the tree masks a hidden appearance of a red wall green tile glaze house, thought it was a temple, but no fragrant guests. Go to the door and see, it turns out that this is the historical site of Hong Kong. The best preserved Lingnan mansion in South China is a real historical mansion! It's a pity that it's 7.1 Hong Kong Holiday and it's not open. Come from Central to take the 15th road directly.
