Jiangxi Guild Hall was built in the late qing dynasty. Covering an area of about 10 square meters, it shows the delicate and warm appearance of the delta. In the small stage of Jiangxi Guild Hall, many seats are arranged for the audience to watch the performance. Sometimes the audience would participate and perform on the stage, so this was the earliest KTV in China.
Huguang hall (Hunan, Hubei hall) facing south, composed of stage, second tower, music tower, front hall, back hall along the axis.
