Chuangdixia Village

Cuandixia Village is located in Zhaitang Town in Mentougou District about 90 kilometers from downtown Beijing. As the best preserved ancient mountain village in China, it is a very interesting and worthwhile destination to visit when travel to Beijing and you would feel like a time travel back to the past. Although the village is originally built during the Ming Dynasty with a history of about 400 years long the constructions are well preserved with more than 70 courtyards with approximately 500 rooms.
Looking like a mountain city, Cuandixia Village is known as the Potala Palace of the Beijing area. Cuandixia Village is comprised of many old residences and courtyards, quadrangle dwellings, all of which are formed around the traditional courtyard style of the Qing Dynasty, or Siheyuan. The traditional houses were built according to the theory of Fengshui with strict layouts. Generally they have five main rooms, with a main house at the front and a back house.
