Product Description

One of the most remarkable personalities of nineteenth century Malaya, Chung Keng Kwee – millionaire philanthropist, tin mining pioneer, political leader, founder of Taiping – left an indelible contribution to Penang’s cultural heritage. He commissioned two adjacent buildings, the magnificent ancestral hall Shen Zhi Jia Shu and the prestigious family mansion Hai Ji Zhan, that stand today as a lasting testimony to another age. This innovative and beautifully-illustrated book offers a unique insight into Chung’s life and how it found expression in the splendour of his architectural creations.
