Mu's Residence

Mu's Residence is the Tusi Mu's Yamen of the Naxi Ethnic Group in Yunnan during the Ming Dynasty. It is situated in the southwest of the Lijiang Old Town. The layout of these courtyards bears striking resemblance to the living area found in the Forbidden City.

The most famous attraction is a stone gate called Zhongyi Gate, which towers in the air and is reputed as the treasure of China. Mu's Residence today covers an area of 46 mu (about 8 acres) and spans a length of 369 meters (about 404 yards). It sits against the Shizi Hill (Lion Hill) and faces east in the direction of sunrise. Mu's Residence completely reflects the open spirit of Naxi people for adoption of multiple cultures. Mu's Residence reflects the architectural style of the central plains of China during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Decorative work, including carvings and paintings of buildings, are similar in style to those in the palace of Ming. Most of the decorations are simple but sublime showing the dignity of the ruler. Some of the buildings show the delicate characteristics of landscape gardens in south China.
