This is the place where 1/4 of Zhuge Liang’s descendants live, decorated in this way, only “high people” dare to go in and out
In China, there are many villages built according to the principles of yin-yang and tai-chi, using the layout of the Eight Matrix. These places often attract many visitors because of the mystery and exquisite decoration handed down through the ages. Among them is an ancient village known as “the first Chinese village”, designed as a mysterious maze, easy to enter and difficult to get out, not many people dare to step in and explore without someone familiar in the area. guide village.
Zhuge Liang Village, formerly known as Cao Long Village, was founded in 1340, located in the west of Lanxi City, Zhejiang Province, China. According to records, this is the settlement of the 27th generation descendant of Zhuge Liang.
For that reason, the overall structure of the village was designed and decorated according to the “Bat Trach” of Khong Minh Zhuge Liang. Accordingly, people take Chung Tri pond as the center, eight small alleys facing eight directions forming the eight trigrams. The alleys in the village have many bends, at first glance like a delicate and mysterious 3D picture.
The terrain of Gia Cat village is quite similar to a basin, in the middle it is low and flat, the surrounding area is gradually rising. Water flows from all directions and gathers in the center of the village, forming a pond. Chung Tri pond is not large, shaped like Tai Chi in the Cuu Cung and Bagua maps. Half is water, the other half is land, representing harmony compensation. This is considered the starting place for the Bat Battle Map, and also the special point of Zhuge Liang. Although hundreds of years have passed, people have prospered and fallen, and more and more houses have been built, the overall layout of the Nine Palaces and Bat Dos of Gia Cat Village is still preserved intact and unchanged.
In the village, there are many narrow alleys connected horizontally, in the alley there are thousands of households, many old houses are scattered among the alleys. The alleys near the central pond are relatively straight at first, then gradually bend and widen to the outside.
Because the structure is like a winding and complicated labyrinth, outsiders often tell each other that Gia Cat village is easy to get in and out, and it is difficult for people who are not familiar to lose their way. And yet, Ba Quai Gia Cat village not only has a unique structure but also a solid military line.
During the Chinese People’s War against Japan, a group of Japanese troops swept across Cao Long hill, capturing villages around Zhuge Liang. But the strange thing is that this army group did not discover the village. Only a few Japanese soldiers who did not believe in ghosts came to the vicinity of Zhuge Liang during the raid, but they all ended up leaving without finding anything. Regardless of how the outside world turned upside down, the small village still stood firm, as if it had never been disturbed, the people here did not suffer a single bit of damage.
Zhuge Liang is the largest gathering place for the descendants of Zhuge Liang, most of the households in the village have the family name Zhuge Liang. The entire village is a huge living cultural relic, a model of the complete preservation of ancient Chinese architecture. When you come to this strange village, just close your eyes and just by chance, you will also spot a house that is more than a hundred years old.
The landscape of the village is very diverse and beautiful, including rows of old houses and an ancient trade center built around a pond, the whole village has formed a unified and rich whole. There are more than 200 well-preserved ancient houses and structures from the Ming and Qing dynasties, including 18 large and small halls, four temples, and three stone domes.
In addition, similar to the village’s basin layout, people in Zhuge Liang mainly apply the quadrangular method to build houses, that is, the four sides of the house are closed, just in the middle of a large courtyard. The front of the house is usually higher than the other sides, when it rains all the water gathers in the courtyard in the middle. The people of Bat Quai village call this “non-outflow feng shui” (fresh, lush water does not flow out), will bring luck and prosperity to the family.
Life in Ba Quai Gia Cat ancient village is very peaceful, fresh air and green landscape. This is the ideal space for tourists to relax after stressful working days. Many foreign tourists have come here to admire the natural scenery and experience the unique structure of the village for themselves.
Walking around in the alleys with this lively atmosphere, time seems to slow down. The patchy walls, mossy stone slabs, old pillars, over the years, have left a few deep and shallow traces. A curved pond reflects elegant buildings, where the flow of history begins to pile up.
