Fodor's Review

A recurring feature of Huizhou architecture, there are almost 100 similar memorial archways dotted throughout Shexian County, but this well-preserved row of seven is the most famous, commemorating the wealthy Bao family and representing traditional values like morality, piety, and female chastity.
