Nan She Village [Dongguan City]

Located in Cha Shan Town, Dong Guan City, Nan She Village is an ancient village which can be traced back to Song dynasty(AD 960~1279). It was laurelled as "The Most Beautiful Village of Guangdong".

Covering an area of 96,000 square meters, there are thirty ancestral halls, three temples and over 250 ancient dwellings in Nan She Village. The ancient architectural complex inside is well-preserved, especially the ancestral halls. Accompanied with the old village, there are some old trees there as well, one of which is already over 800 years old.

The architectures in Nan She village represent the distinctive ancient Pearl River Delta characteristics. Every dwelling owned its well and cobble alley, with lively wood carvings and stone carvings on the front door. Hundreds of dwellings are well-distributed around thick trees, full of classical charm.

In addition, there is a wall around the village which was built in AD 1644 to protect villagers from bandits. Nan She Village was built around a shimmering long pond which was divided by three graceful bridges. The reflections on the water add a dreamlike beauty of the time-honored Nan She village.

Location: Cha Shan Town, Dongguan City
