An Old Mansion Found in Honggang Town 10-01-14


  Reported by Song Zhiqiang and Li Kunchao  (

  Visiting the ancient dwellings is the highlight of the Tour to Tongshan. Yesterday, when the reporter had an interview in Honggang Town of Tongshan country, the local people intensely asked the reporter to pay a visit to an ancient dwelling named the “Wang’s courtyard” in Jiangyuan Village. And they hoped to make its mystery known by the world.

  The Wang’ s courtyard located in the fifth group of Jiangyuan Village is in a solemn atmosphere between the green hill and clear water. The doorplate which reads “Ye Zhen Lang Xie” is still recognizable though mottled. The main part of the house is quintuplicate and constructed by exquisite woodcarving, stone carving and the bluestones. It has typical characters of the ancient dwelling.

  Stepping into the quintuplicate yard and the eight-shape gate tower, the Gunlong Wall and Matou buttress which was particular to the ancient dwelling, you will feel as if they were telling you the folk culture of Tongshan voicelessly. The courtyard has survived more than 100 years, and now it has 36 patios and 100 rooms, and its covering area is more than 3000 square meters.

  According to an elderly local’s introduction, this is the localities of the people whose first name is Wang. The primary house-owner Wang Diguang is a rich squire who lived in the juncture between Hubei and Jiangxi provinces in Guangxu Years. He spent 3 years in building the mansion.
