China Hall in Sunlight Valley

The whole structure of the China Exhibition Hall is in a form of a giant wooden bracket (斗拱) in a typical Chinese style, which has been viewed as a unique signature of the traditional Chinese architecture created by ancient Chinese and later adopted by its neighbouring states including Vietnam, Japan, and North and South Koreas.

A Bronze Man produced during the Ming Dynasty (明代针灸铜人, 1368 - 1644) for acupuncture training and examination will also be among the priceless treasures in display.
