Highlights Archives: Ancient Street of Tunxi

Tunxi Ancient Street lies in the center of Tunxi district, where the municipality of Huangshan is located. The street with centuries-old history dates back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279). Emperor Huizong (1082-1135) moved his seat of government to Lin’an ( present Hangzhou ), when many architects and workmen were conscripted to construct the new capital. After returning to their hometown, they imitated the structural style to build architecture along the street; thus Tunxi Ancient Street was formed. Tunxi Ancient Street, became a distribution center for goods and materials to Huizhou during Ming and Qing dynasties.
The street is paved with maroon flagstones with a total length of 1,273 m (about 1,392 yards), of which 895m (about 979 yards) is the pedestrian commercial street. Shops standing on both sides are generally of two or three stories high, which feature the local Anhui style of stone base, brick construction and tile roof. The layout of these ancient buildings commonly takes on the characteristic of shops in the front while residences or workshops are to the rear.
