陈氏书院

刚到吉隆坡时,我就注意到一栋古色古香的建筑--陈氏书院。一直都想到里头看看,但在吉隆坡生活了这么多年都没成行。今天离开了大众书局,心想:陈氏书院就在不远的地方,干脆就现在去吧!就这样,我终于到了陈氏书院。

陈氏书院的外墙和屋顶有着许多的雕像。

陈氏书院的正门口。

祠堂的正厅取名“德星堂”。此名的由来就不得而知了。

祠堂正中祭拜的是三个陈氏的老祖宗。两边的照片又都是谁呢?

这陈氏书院究竟是如何运作的?是个私人祠堂吗?这一切我都不知道。在里头转了一圈,并没看见什么说明。期间有几名老外游客走进来,可是没有英文解说(华文的也没有),他们呆了不到半分钟就离开了。感觉上很可惜… 这么一个文化气息浓郁祠堂、充满特色的建筑,老外游客应该是非常喜欢的。从前在香港,我到过他们旅游局大力推广的heritage trail的祠堂。太差了(怎么差就不说了),根本就无法和陈氏书院相比。可是那儿有双语的解说板,陈氏书院也应该有。我们的旅游局究竟要来干什么的?

      Hi Irene,
      Thanks for your birthday wishes. I did try to write in both English and Chinese for each blog entry, but I got lazy… :p I may try to start doing that again. 🙂
