【中国福州游玩记】 林则徐纪念堂 & 三坊七巷 Fun In FuZhou : Remembering Lin ZeXu & A Good Walk at Cultural Street (ShanFangQiXiang)

China Part 5 - Fu Zhou (福州), Northern FuJian (福建)

It's a norm to visit museum while we are traveling to other countries, there goes with our China trip in FuZhou.

Visited Lin ZeXu memorial, a well known person back then, where he was the person who eliminate Opium 鸦片 with various methods. A great person who plays a huge role in China.

- Lin ZeXu Memorial -

"Located at Fuzhou of Fujian Province and founded in 1982 in memory of the national hero Lin Zexu of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), is a memorial of Chinese historical figure. The site of the memorial, covering an area of 3,000 square meters, used to be the memorial temple of Lin Zexu built in 1905. The main buildings inside the memorial are the Yimen Hall, Yubei Pavilion, Shude Hall, the southern and northern reception rooms, Quchi Building and Zhubai Study.

And we went for a tour, to know more about Lin ZeXu life in the olden days. The sculpture how he treats opium incidents. Burning them and capture the person behind.

Here are some of the photos I took from the museum tour. Beautifully. Historically.
