Xidi Village (Xīdī)

Xidi Village (Xīdī) Review

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Xidi Village is known for its exquisite memorial gate. There were once a dozen gates, but they were destroyed during the Cultural Revolution. The existing gate was left standing as a "bad example" to be criticized. There are several houses with excellent examples of brick carving and an impressive Clan Temple with massive ginkgo columns and beams.
