Li’s ancestral temple and the ancient architecture cluster

Initially constructed in the ninth year of the Qiandao period of the South Song Dynasty (1173) about one thousand years ago, Li's Ancestral Temple is a comparatively early ancestral temple in the Pearl River delta area. Li's Ancestral Temple adopts a tortoise layout and has preserved two precious tablet sculptures of high relic value made in the Hongwu period of the Ming Dynasty on which there are articles written by the six celebrities of the Dynasty of the Song, Yuan and Ming Dynasties. As one of the 4 prestigious villages in Dongguan, Huangchong once had a developed economy in the Ming and Qing Dynasty.

Yishi Wenlin Building

Aside from Li's ancestral temple, on the bank of the Huangchong River there stand skillful buildings of the Ming and Qing Dynasty such as Ronglu Li's Family Temple, Jingqing Li's Family Temple, Huangchong Literature Pavilion, Juren Li, Shi's Fang, buildings of Civilization Inspiration and Yishi Wenlin Building. This forms a street of ancient skillful architectures of the Ming and Qing Dynasty. Sculpted beams, painted pillars, deep ancient alleys, and antique atmosphere can be seen in the ancient buildings of Huangchong. Now Li's Ancestral Temple along with the ancient architecture cluster is a relic protection unit of Guangdong province.
