This is the oldest private library in China. It has about 300,000 books in its collection. Many of them are rare. The Library was founded by Fan Quin during the heydays of the Ming dynasty. In Chinese Alchemy, the word “tianyi” is related to water. This place was titled this way in order to protect it from fire. Built on the banks of the Moon River, this old family home is very well maintained and is a treat to explore. In the library, you will find detailed descriptions that will explain to you the importance of certain collections. The smell of old books is eminent. The lighting is dim and moody.
