The reception hall 接官厅

安徽省东至县尧渡镇梅城村周村组

My ancestor Zhou Fu built two 祠堂 shrines. The main one was burned to the ground by the invading Japs during the war, and this dilapidated building was the rare hall – what was left of the second shrine. They now call it the reception hall 接官厅. Many events, indeed are held here. Near by is his home site where Zhou Fu was born and grew up and a ruined building.

Paying my respect to my ancestors, with my distant cousin (族姐周启恕) Qishu who’s the only one still lives there. Getting a group photo with my handsome chauffeur (just kidding) and courteous hosts, who volunteer their time and resources for a better tomorrow.

A few snapshots in and out of the Reception Hall. Many slogans from the bygone era are still visible.
