Chang's Compound Introduction

The Chang's Compound lies in the Chewang Village of Dongyang Town, 17.5 kilometers southeast of the Yuci County. Actually it is a splendid group of constructions of northern folk houses in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), and at the same time, it is the largest o­ne in scale among so many compounds of Shanxi merchants.
Enjoying a temperate continental monsoon climate, Jinzhong has dry and chilly winter, torrid and wet summer. Its annual average temperature falls around 9 degree centigrade (48.2 degree Fahrenheit). o­n the whole, its rainfall mainly concentrates o­n summer. As to the spatial distribution, the rainfall in southeast Jinzhong is more than that in the northwest.  Autumn is the most ideal period to visit Jinzhong.

Chang's Compound Features

The houses standing in row upon row in Chang's Compound are very different from each other. Strolling in the compound, you can easily figure out the living area of this big family consisting of the grey streets, stone roads, decorated archways, quadrangles and stages. Although the owners are gone and o­nly the empty buildings remain, you can still be blessed in this place with a feel for the history and the culture. As mentioned above, Chang's Compound is a typical northern o­ne, but it has flavors of other parts of China. Probably the owners persevered in the traditional standard of etiquettes and living criterions, but simultaneously they integrated other architectural styles into their own structures. Its main constructions reveal the mightiness of this rich and powerful family, while the attached structures give visitors the flavor of southern gardens. In Chang's Compound there is o­ne wooden decorated archway in the center of every inner yard. And o­n each side of this small and exquisite decorated archway you will see brick sculpted walls which enrich the beauty of the whole yard with the elegance of southern gardens. Between and behind the courtyard of Chang's Compound, there are flower gardens and vegetable gardens. All of these gardens have wickets connecting with the courtyards. Stepping into those gardens, you will feel drawn into the poetic environment created by the cloisters, pavilions, bridges and mirror-like water. In every courtyard of Chang's Compound, you are provided with the chance to enjoy brick, wood and stone sculptures. The inscriptions o­n these sculptures are verses, adages or patterns of flowers like plums, orchids and chrysanthemum. These sculptures show the particular cultural refinement and strong life interest of the compound owner. They are considered the most elaborate examples of the Qing Dynasty's building art.
