Tianlong Tunpu (Village Fortress) (1)

贵州屯堡是当年朱元章屯军驻扎的地方。任由时代变迁,这里的人们过着600年与世隔绝的生活。民风民情没有改变,可以称得上是个仍生活在明代的村落。


The tunpu (village fortress) in Anshun, Guizhou, was built in the Ming Dynasty (600 years ago) for military use. During the early period of Ming Dynasty, Emperor Zhuyuanzhang sent Han national troops from the middle and lower reaches of the Changjiang (Yangtze) River to Anshun.Despite the changing of dynasties and the passage of hundreds of years, residents of Tianlong Tunpu still live in forts and keep a simple and peculiar army style, retaining their traditional Ming lifestyles, clothing and hair styles.
