Ma Family Manor

Famous Residences
The Ma Family Manor was the former residence of the Ma Yuyao, once the governor of Guangdong and Guangxi in the late Qing Dynasty, reputed to be the "leader above all leaders." The manor began construction during the reign of the Qing Emperor Guangxu and was not completed until the early years of the Warlord Era. The Ma Family Manor lies between mountains and water. After a hundred years of wind, rain and the vicissitudes of life, the main buildings are still intact. The layout of the entire manor follows the rigorous architectural design of a Beijing courtyard house, with spacious and bright open gardens, along with rich art evocative of Jinshang courtyards. Notable architectural features include the familiar blue brick and gray tiles of the Central Plains.
Cao Cao Mausoleum
23 Reviews
Cao Cao Mausoleum is located in Anfeng Township, Anyang City, Henan Province. The top view of the mausoleum forms the shape of the character "Jia" (甲) and is a double-chambered brick tomb with a sloped passage leading to the tomb. It is large in size and complex in structure, comprising mainly of a tomb passage, a front and back room, and four side rooms. The discovery of the mausoleum confirmed that the various records of the position of Cao Cao’s Mausoleum, Cao Cao’s hobbies and the system of thrifty funerals that he advocated found in literature possess a degree of credibility. The result of discovering the mausoleum set a standard for the work of archaeology on the Han and Wei Dynasty.
