Observatory to open after facelift

The 114-year-old Sheshan Observatory will reopen to the public on the Spring Festival on January 31 after a six-month  renovation — the first in a century in an effort to restore it to its original glory.

The major renovation mainly repaired the facade and roof of the observatory that had cracked, said Cao Yongkang, a historic building protection expert with Jiao Tong University who lead the renovation. Some of its former designs were also put in place such as the wooden shutter of the building and stone roads in front of it.
