Reviews about Ganjia Courtyard

慵懒国王

5/5
Reviewed on Feb 10, 2016

Nanjing's most famous residence in the south of the Yangtze River is mainly the history of the Gan family in Nanjing, known as 99 and a half, whose family celebrities have sprung up for a long time. On the other hand, it is a folk museum in Nanjing, which has profound cultural connotations. There are also exhibition centers of Nanjing's non-heritage cultural heritage, such as Nanjing Yunjin, Jinling embroidery and so on, which can be feasted on. Unfortunately, the number of people is relatively small and the popularity is not high, but it is definitely one of the most worthwhile places in Nanjing.

Sanshanjie Station of Metro Line 1 is very close, and there is also a toll parking lot. Ticket is 20 yuan (park annual card is available). Founded in the Jiaqing period of the Qing Dynasty, commonly known as "99 rooms and a half", it is the largest private residence in China. Ganxi was a famous scholar in the late Qing Dynasty. He had many works. He visited Wu and Yue with his father Ganfu. He collected more than 100,000 books and built a library called Tianjin Gathering Building. The Gan family is good at Beijing-Kunming art and has set up a study club. They have a lot of experience in Beijing Opera, Kunqu Opera and Guqin. Yan Fengying, an artist of Huangmei Opera, is also the daughter-in-law of the Gan family. Ganxi's former residence is said to be ninety-nine and a half rooms, in fact, there are 162 rooms, only nine for the maximum number of sunshine and auspicious, after nine to ten, it began to go downhill, so since ancient times there has been a "Nine-Five Dignity" saying. Therefore, this half represents modesty less than one hundred times, and the satisfaction of reaching the goal in only half a step. Ganxi's former residence is not a Hui-style building, nor a complete Soviet-style building. It has its own architectural style like Gaochun and Liuhe in Nanjing. For example, the gate building is simple and elegant, and the firewall is very tall and practical. The whole building reflects the cultural taste and ethics of the gentry class in Jinling. The layout is rigorous and symmetrical, with distinct primary and secondary, high and low edges, high and low front and low back, gradual and step by step to the climax. The open spaces on the main axis are slightly larger than those on both sides, and the entrance of the whole house is in the middle of the main axis. All kinds of rooms arranged along the vertical and deep axes are arranged in sequence as follows: - "one enters the hall, two enters the car hall, three enters the main hall, four, five enters the inner hall, etc. The layout of the building is strictly in accordance with the patriarchal concept and family system of the feudal society. It pays attention to the full house of descendants and generations. As a result, the size of the house is huge, the grade is strict, the location, decoration, area and shape of all kinds of houses have unified hierarchical regulations. Now the former residence has become a scenic spot, specializing in the development of traditional crafts in Jinling. At the weekend, old artists show the production process on the spot and sell their works at the same time. Today, there are only three masters in the snow, but the works can still be visited by you. There is a Gold Foil Museum in the left-hand mansion. Although we know the birthplace of gold foil in Nanjing, we haven't had a thorough understanding of it. Looking at it systematically, it's a good idea to have more knowledge. Teahouse, confirm that every Saturday, Sunday 14:30 p.m. have performances, order a cup of tea to sit and watch, perfect miss today, must come to watch the Tianjin arrest building destroyed by the Qing Army and the Taiping Army in another day, 160,000 books lost more than half, and then stolen, now downstairs for contemporary reconstruction, but empty pavilions, ancient books have disappeared.
