Peitian Ancient Village
Peitian Ancient Village (培田古村) in the Fujian Province is regarded as the first village of Fujian residential buildings. It is very precious, as the village has not been spoiled by tourism and commercialization. The village is an ancient Hakka Village consisting of buildings in the Ming and Qing style with a history of more than 800 years, and is located about 100 km from Longyan City, and 300 km from Xiamen City.
If Yongding Tulou buildings are like closed, solid, ancient castles, the residential buildings in Peitian could be considered big, elegant, bold manor houses. Although there are only about 1000 villagers, it boasts thirty big dwellings, twenty-one ancestral temples, six academies, four temples, and even two memorial archways across the street, most of which stand on either side of the 1000-km ancient road. Incredibly, all this is within an area of only 13.4 square meters.
Besides these valuable sites, the backdrop of the mountain scenery is also a highlight, as the village is situated at the foot Guanzhai Mountain. Being one of the major staging points along the state road in ancient times, visitors can now imagine the busy scene when many horse-drawn carriages went by.
