Yu Ancestral Hall

Temple in Yújiācūn

Yújiācūn is a model Chinese clan village, where 95% of the inhabitants all share the same surname of Yu (于). One of the village's more unusual sights is the town ancestral hall, where you’ll find the 24-generation family tree, reaching back over 500 years. There are five tapestries, one for the descendants of each of the original Yu sons who founded the village.
