Architectural Features

Built in 1914, the Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum is located in the Kom Tong Hall, originally the residence of the local businessman Ho Kom-tong. Being a typical Edwardian Classical building, this building has the facade surrounded by the Greek-style granite columns. Inside the premises are preserved the stained-glass windows, balcony wall tiles and staircase railings in good condition. Kom Tong Hall was among the earliest residential buildings constructed with reinforced concrete structure and fitted with concealed electrical wiring in Hong Kong. It is also one of the best-preserved buildings dating back to the early 20th century Hong Kong. It has been listed as a declared monument in Hong Kong since 2010.
