Hong Village

                               Hongcun Village-Yellow Mountain

       

Hongcun Village is the place full of beautiful scenery, Hongcun Village has always enjoyed the name a village in the Chinese painting.

The most fascinating thing about this village is its design. It was designed and constructed in the shape of a buffalo. The Leigang Hill at the west end is like a buffalo’s head, with two big trees (one maple /poplar and one ginkgo, both are more than 500 years old) at the entrance like two horns, four stone bridges across the Jieyang River are like the four legs of the buffalo, the blocks of ancient houses in the village make up the body, while a long stream of 1000 meters winding among the houses is just like the bowel of the buffalo, a pond in the shape of a half-moon is the stomach, and a larger pool in the south of the village (Nanhu Lake) is the belly of the buffalo. The local people used their industry and intelligence to design and construct such a buffalo-shape village.

The village started to take shape 800 years ago when the ancestor moved from other villages after heavy losses from fire. So from the very beginning, the villagers have been conscious of making water supply handy to each family in case the wood- structured house caught fire again. Now people will find a water canal running along every residence.

The village still preserves over 140 dwelling houses from the Ming and Qing dynasties, all in excellent condition. All the buildings have exquisite carvings and are magnificent symbols of its time. Among them, Chengzhi Hall, which is regarded as the “countryside palace museum”, is a typical representative of ancient Hui-style residence by a rich merchant Wang Dinggui.
