Reputed as "King of Jiangnan Pharmacies", Hu Qing Yu Tang Pharmacy is a TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) pharmacy. It was established by the "Hongding merchant" (红顶商人：refers to a merchant who also served as a government official which was rare in Chinese history) — Hu Xueyan (胡雪岩) in 1874 during the Qing Dynasty. The pharmacy is located in Hangzhou historical and cultural block — Qinghefang Street (清河坊). The construction of the pharmacy is the best-preserved late Qing Dynasty complex for industry and commerce in China.
