    Jiayin Hall

      Jiayin Hall, established in 1912, is located in the front part of Youjia Lane in Zhuxing Street; it has four entrances and all the doors, windows and beams are well-carved. Its owner Liu Bingnan, original Beishe people, started oil mill in Luxu at the very beginning, and moved to Tongli to build luxurious residence which cost 20,000 grams silver after becoming rich. Liu Bingnan and the famous patriotic poet Liu Yazi are of the same clan.

      The main architecture of Jiayin Hall, commonly referred to as “Gauze Cap Hall”, imitates the architectural style of Ming dynasty. It got such a name because the front beam is like the cap wing in Ming dynasty. The high and spacious court is solemn and grand. The symmetric two sides of five beams are carved with Eight Horses, and the two ends of beams are carved with Phoenix and Peony. Such patterns as Satisfaction and Destined to be Selected are carved at the back of beams. What’s more rare is that the gauze cap wings (i.e. the front beam) are carved with eight pictures in Romance of Three Kingdoms including Meeting in Ancient Town, Three Big Persons (Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei) Fighting against Lv Bu, etc.. All the figures in these pictures are vividly portrayed.
