Very beautiful Rongzhai. The former residence of Rong Zongjing. The former residence of King Flour. Glazed ceilings and windows with views. Wander all the way from the first floor to the third floor. In the restored model, the floor space of Rongzhai is larger. The legend of that era~ well, it's far away. If it is sunny and there are few people, Rong's House should be even more beautiful. The squeak of the wooden stairs is the most beautiful song left by the years.
