The aim of this paper is to investigate the dynamic properties of traditional complex bracket sets in an oriental timber temple by shaking table tests. The experimental programme considered the roof weight and the intensity of ground excitation The results showed that the whole system can be simplified as a lump mass system with single degree of freedom, and the system perform ed significant decrease in natural frequency under the condition of combined heavy roof weight and strong ground acceleration.
