Some name them Chinese Renaissance and some say they are Eclectic Architecture. No matter how they are named, their appearance will always catch our attention - a bit of Chinese and a bit of western. They were the products of the time, when the post revolutionary China had been established and western trained Chinese Architects went back to their homelands and put their passion in revitalizing Chinese architecture into practice. Tung Lin Kok Yuen was one of these Chinese-western hybrid built in 1935 under this social context that still exists in Hong Kong. Though talking about the social architectural history and visiting this pre war Buddhist Temple, one can understand more the architectural style of that era.
