UNESCO - Fujian Tulou, China

Fujian Tulou is a property of 46 buildings constructed between the 15th and 20th centuries over 120 km in south-west of Fujian province, inland from the Taiwan Strait. Set amongst rice, tea and tobacco fields the Tulou are earthen houses several storeys high, built along an inward-looking, circular or square floor plan as housing for up to 800 people each.
This postcard shows the Yuchanglou (裕昌樓), a five-storey tulou located at Nanjing County, Shuyang Town, Xiabanliao Village. It was built in 1308 Yuan dynasty by the Liu family clan and is one of the oldest and tallest tulou in China. Yuchanglou has been nicknamed the "zigzag building", also ''dilapitated building''.
But it looks quite awesome doesn't it? Thanks so much Kay :))
