The tombs of the Emperor and First Minister remain in the mountains. At the time, Dazhang Mountain was known as the Three Emperors, the Three King Mountain and Zhang Peak.

Hu Zongxian's Historical Home
4.4/5
155 Reviews
Historical Architecture

This is the home of Hu Zongxian, a famous general of China's Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and direct ancestor of former Communist Party General Secretary Hu Jintao. Aside from its elaborate design and unique layout, it is renowned for its many watchtowers and pathways, as well as walls with eaves characteristically flared like horses' heads. Aspects such as these 'horse head' walls make the home a symbol of the architecture of Huizhou, equivalent to parts of modern Anhui. It is said that at one time 7 generations of one family all lived here, and still were able to live together harmoniously.
