Tianyi Pavilion (Tian Yi Ge)

Tianyi Pavilion (Tian Yi Ge) Review

Down a peaceful alley off Changchun Road, the Tianyi Pavilion is the oldest private library in China. Built in 1596 and founded by Fan Qin, this spiritual place features gold-plated, wood-paneled buildings, bamboo groves, pools, and a rockery. The scholarly setting, worth a visit for the architecture alone, preserves an atmosphere of seclusion and contemplation.
