Perched at the foot of Mt. Huangshan, Tangmo Village was rated as one of the top ten 'must see' famous scenic spots in Huangshan City.
It was constructed originally in the Tang Dynasty (618-907) according to the architectural styles of that time. It reached its height of prosperity in both the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties. Upon your arrival there, you will be captivated by the quiet rural life style of this particular culture, and the natural beauty that is incorporated within this famous historic and cultural village.
One particular spot you should not miss in Tangmo Village is the Tanganyuan Garden. It is said that this garden was established by a rich man for his mother, an old lady who could not realize her wish to be able to travel to the West Lake in Hangzhou. Therefore, some scenic spots of the garden which were similar to those of the West Lake were created for her. Softly scented Sandalwood and bauhinia were planted around the garden and a crystal stream trickles through it. Visitors can also find exquisite pavilions and halls beside the lake. The combination of all these features contributes towards making visitors feel both physically relaxed and more spiritually aware.
It is 13 kilometers (8 miles) from historic town, Shexian, and only 5 kilometers (3 miles) from Chengkan Village, 3 kilometers (2 miles) from Tangyue Memorial Archways. Qiankou Residence is also very close. Visitors can visit these places together.
