In 1669, the 8th year of Emperor Kangxi’s reign of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), Tong Ren Tang was established by Yue Xianyang who served as a senior physician of the royal court of the Qing Dynasty.
In 1702, the company relocated within Beijing to the address from which it has operated ever since.
In 1723, Tong Ren Tang was appointed the sole supplier of medicinal herbs/herbal medicines to the royal court of the Qing Dynasty by Emperor Yongzheng and remained in that position until the collapse of the Qing Dynasty in 1911.
Today, Tong Ren Tang provides high quality TCM and Western medications. Their dispensing pharmacy compounds thousands of TCM prescriptions each day.
Our hotel is walking distance from the Bund; an area with dozens of historical buildings, lining the Huangpu River.
