Guanlu Village

Guanlu Village is an ancient village in Yixian County where the Wang's race lived for nearly thousands of years, beginning in the Song Dynasty. The villages had built numerous buildings and houses with exquisite carvings on ceilings and rooftops. Among the buildings, the most famous are located at the "Eight Prominent Families". These beautiful houses are built by eight brothers, of which are the core of the village. The houses are built one after another, as an indication of Chinese clan priorities and power.

Guanlu Village of Xiwu Township is a shining scenic spot in the Peachblossom Fountain, praised by the visitors as the "treasure of the Yellow Mountain, China". Guanlu is a big village where people gathered since the ancient time. The Wang family has been living here for nearly one thousand years since their arrival in Song Dynasty (960-1279).

In the middle of Qing Dynasty (1616-1911), the Wang family made fortune in business alongside the Yangtze River. They went in a large scale in for the architecture, and consequently changed the appearance of the village. badajia (The Big Eight), the central architecture of Guanlu, were eight luxurious houses built by eight brothers. In the exterior, they seem to be separate, while in fact they are connected together as a whole, a representative of the traditional Chinese family-tribe consciousness and family power.
