Nanshe Ming and Qing Ancient Village are distinctive destinations in the Pearl River Delta, offering an opportunity to experience the architectural style and traditional culture of the Ming and Qing eras. The centuries-old villages of Nanshe were forced out during the expansion of the Ming and Qing Dynasties, but experts and scholars have joined forces to protect and maintain culturally significant carvings and valuable relics, as well as edifices from the era which have managed to remain intact to this day. Their heroic efforts are responsible for the continued existence of the Xie’s Ancestral Hall, which was constructed from clay with red stone running along the base of its walls. Additionally, a masonry building built with brick and a customary three-bay courtyard with triple entrances are sights worth seeing.
