The existing one is a late-Qing architecture, which keeps much of the original style.


Zhouzhuang, a famous water town in southern China, is located in Kunshan City, Jiangsu Province. Because Zhouzhuang is surrounded by water, boats were necessary for entering and departing from Zhouzhuang before the 1980s. Before the Jishuigang Bridge was built in May 1989, land transportation was not available. Due to an undeveloped transportation network, the ancient culture and historical sites of Zhouzhuang were well-preserved after more than 900 years. This beautiful small town has become the model of China's water towns.
