Take a step back into the past on the remarkable journey of Cheong Fatt Tze and his rise from a mere ‘bearer of river water’ to his legendary status as the Rockefeller of the East, J.P. Morgan of China and the Last Mandarin and First Capitalist of China.
Discover the architectural intricacy of his beloved Mansion and the labour of love that went into the restoration that shaped it's iconic status today.
While monumentally traditional in design, the Blue Mansion also bears an eclectic architectural trait that exemplifies the 19th century era. It is at this time when the myths and magic of the Chinese Kingdom converge with the glory of the British Empire within the Malay world. The Blue Mansion also demonstrates both Cheong Fatt Tze’s deepening fascination with Western artisanship and his rising stature as a Chinese official.
