Introduction to Jiangtou Ancient Village (江头古村)

Located in north of Guilin, Jiangtou Ancient Village is the largest and best-preserved collection of ancient buildings in Guangxi province. In history, it proved that the Jiangtouers were the descendants of Zhoudunyi-an outstanding literati and philosopher in Song dynasty.

One of the most interesting things about ancient village is that more than 90% of the residents there share the same family name- "Zhou". People here have the same ancestor-Zhou Dunyi, who was a famous philosopher, writer, and a great thinker of the Northern Song Dynasty. 

The village has preserved the architectural pattern during the Ming and Qing dynasties, covered by the black bricks and gray tiles, wood frame. The houses are tall, row upon row, cascading roof, simple and elegant. The scenery of the village is so beautiful, recommend for those going on Guilin China Travel.

The north of Jiangtou Village is near the lush Huangjia Hill where spring water flows perennially, the south leans against the Jiuxian Hill, the west is next to Fingers Sector, and the east looks towards the Beacon Hill. The Immortal Hill is in front of the south-east of the village, and the General Hill is in front of the north-east of it, as two guards guarding the peace of the village.

There are hectares of fertile farmland in front of the village. Three glittering and translucent rivers, such as belts around the village, flow slowly to the south, means that future generations fly far and high and have bright prospects. Behind the village, there are green pines, verdant cypresses and towering old trees. The whole village is near the hills and by the rivers, pleasant environment.
