"Why visit Tulou?" Nanjing Favorite Tip by cpim2004

Nanjing General: 1 reviews and 1 photos


Favorite thing: Literally translated as "Earth Buildings??, Tulou is like a fortress, with distinctively circular or rectangular forms, and high earthen walls. Clans living inside utilize every square inch of space for their domestic use, so that they do not have to leave the buildings. Generally considered a wonder of ancient architecture.
