Tuanshan historic village Zhang family's garden

Tuanshan historic village Honghe Yunnan
Lost in the remote region of Jianshui and Yuanyang, the ancient village of Tuanshan is an architectural treasure of Yunnan. These traditional buildings have retained its original charm. The abundance and richness are still felt in its maze of alleys. This feeling is even stronger once past the door of the Zhang family's Garden.

A Traditional Location 

An authentic, traditional setting about fifteen kilometers away from Jianshui, the small village of Tuanshan, with its gray roofs and walls marked by time, it has retained its original charm, less tainted by modernity. Located in a remote region of China, formerly prosperous families had settled here. The offspring of these old houses can still be found today.
This historic village is a rare example of the traditional villages of Yunnan. Akin to how it is surrounded by a wall, this village has been well-preserved. It was built in the fourteenth century but actually prospered five centuries later, with the development of trade. While strolling through the maze of streets, immerse yourself in this special atmosphere.

Zhang Family's Garden 

In the heart of Tuanshan, the residence of the Zhang family is most impressive. It is just like a little village within the village. The whole area is surrounded by a wall that extends over 2.4 acres! It consists of several buildings that are accessed by a network of streets. The houses are interconnected by courtyards, giving a sense of wealth and abundance. This residence is reputed as a traditional and architectural treasure. The rich merchant family of this residence, doomed indeed, had a great fascination for woodcarving at the time. It is still possible to admire the superb engravings on the pillars and pediments of buildings. Spirituality also took an important place in the life of this family, as the residence contains a magnificent hall of ancestors and a private Buddhist temple.
