North China’s largest landlord manor

Photo taken on Jan 11, 2016 shows Mou's Manor, home of an eminent landlord in Qixia city, East China's Shandong province. Founded during the reign of the emperor Yongzheng during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), it is the best-preserved existing landlord manor and the largest of its kind in North China. Covering 20,000 square meters, the complex has 480 rooms in six courtyards. With reliefs and patterns on its buildings considered to have high artistic and cultural value, the manor was placed under national protection in 1988. It evokes the lifestyle of a noble family in a bygone era and is a popular tourist attraction today. [Photo/China News Service]
