The Tjong A Fie Mansion in Medan

This is a very elegant two stories house. It has an internal yard with a nice soft light from the sky. Walking through the rooms, seeing old gramophones, faded mirrors, old family pictures in wodden frame, it is possible to imagine large family gatherings for the Chinese New Year.  This is what was once the house of the richest man in town and maybe the whole of Sumatra.
