Xiamen

Chuxi tulou cluster

Chuxi tulou (初溪土樓)

The Chuxi tulou are 15th century Ming-era tulou, including one building that is four stories tall, no small feat for a building made of mud. These enclosed homes, which are made of rammed earth, stone, wood and other miscellaneous materials (some even have rice in the walls!), house members of the Hakka minority. Like many of the tulou in the region, it represents a remnent of an older time, when communal living was more common and warring tribes were a more regular occurance.
