Julong Ancient Village

Guangzhou Julong Ancient Village

Julong Village, tucked away deep in an alley, was home to wealthy merchants of the Kuang clan from 1875 to 1908, the reign of Emperor Guangxu of the Qing Dynasty. More than 10 years ago, the village was listed as a city-level cultural heritage site. Two years ago, the renovation project kicked off. By now, the 19 ancient mansions with unique doors and Manchurian-style windows have all been restored to their former glory; the ancient village has received a facelift, exuding homely elegance. The government will also allot RMB15 million to replace the structures around the village with landscaped sights.
