Xiangjilong Residential Houses are located in the center of Jingdezhen City. Xiangjilong is a well-preserved alley from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) with a large number of traditional folk residences. All the houses there are divided into an upper hall and a lower hall with four central rooms, two wing rooms and a back room. A dooryard stands in the center with doors on both sides. Open rooms in the central hall only have one floor making the space appear tall and grand. The column bases and house foundations are engraved with exquisite carvings featuring regularly distributed designs and colorful patterns. The girders and columns all use huge pieces of wood, which are about 50 cm in diameter.
