Imperial Examination Hall in Guangxi

Largest Imperial Examination Hall in South-West
In the years of "Shunzhi" in Qing Dynasty, the loyal court established the imperial examination hall on the foundation of prince city. People wished to pass the exam in order to be selected as an officer in the court. The prince city could hold around 5000 test rooms to the maximum. We can see how important the imperial examination was during that period, though Guangxi was remote from the capital city.
