The building was famous for its excellent wood carving and colored drawings both at home and abroad. It was constructed in 1676 during the reign of Emperor Kangxi, and later many colored drawings and wood carvings were added to the building during the period of Emperor Qianlong. The stage was engraved with 18 local operas from the Chinese classic The Three Kingdoms, showing more than 600 vivid images. [Photo by Liu Qinli/asianewsphoto.com]
