Weekly Photo Challenge: Ornate ( Ancestral Hall )

All Chinese ancestral halls are ornate, but not excessively so.

This picture was taken at a quiet corner of the ancestral hall at Lung Yeuk Tau, New Territories in Hong Kong.DSCF0442

I like all the decorations of the roof; the only thing I have reservation is the black wall tiling.

For most ancestral halls, the walls are made of “green bricks”. Maybe, they are no longer available, they are now replaced by the black tiled walls. What a pity!
