Important Note

In a bid to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus, Guangzhou has closed most major tourist attractions, they were "monitoring the situation" and would reveal when they could re-open in due course. We do not recommend traveling to Guangzhou or China before the end of March 2020.

It was once a pawnshop in the Qing Dynasty and is often called "Dadongmen Pawnshop". The surface appearance of the ancient building is one of squareness, it is five-stories high on the north side and four stories on the south side. Its exterior façade assumes a watchtower shape.
