Tai Fu Tai Mansion

Tai Fu Tai Mansion

See for yourself how the Chinese elite of Hong Kong lived during the 19th century with a visit to Tai Fu Tai, an opulent residence built in the fourth year of the reign of Tongzhi (1865) of the Qing dynasty. The owner was Man Chung-luen, a scholar who was bestowed with the title Tai Fu (‘Mandarin’) by the Qing Emperor. Man’s ancestors settled in San Tin sometime during the 15th century.

The building is considered to be one of the most beautifully embellished traditional Chinese buildings in Hong Kong. It is particularly renowned for its fine architectural decorations, such as the lavish plaster mouldings and auspicious Chinese woodcarvings adorning its regal interior.
