Yin Yu Tang, or "Hall of Plentiful Shelter," is a stately sixteen-bedroom house built in the 1790's by a prosperous merchant in the Huizhou region of southeastern China. It was home to eight generations of the Huang family for more than 200 years. Situated according to feng shui principles to ensure a harmonious relationship with the landscape, rooms are arranged around an interior "sky-well" and surrounded by decorative details, such as elaborately carved lattice and two fish pools. As part of a cultural exchange project, Yin Yu Tang and its contents were carefully dismantled from its original location in China and re-erected at the Peabody Essex Museum in 2003.
