Additional Information

Introduction

Huishan Ancient Town is situated to the north of Xihui park in Wuxi, and is made up of many old ancestral halls. Construction of the cluster of ancestral halls began in the Tang dynasty and flourished in the Ming and Qing dynasties. Most of the ones we see now are Qing dynasty ancestral halls. More than 80 family names are represented in these ancestral halls, so it's worth visiting and finding about your ancestors. Moreover, Wuxi clay figurines from the town make good souvenirs, and the local food is also worth trying. In addition, Huishan Ancient Town is encircled by a north-south horizontal street and an east-west vertical street. At the eastern end of the vertical street, there is a large screen wall on which four big Chinese characters saying "Huishan Ancient Town" are inscribed.
