At the turn-off for Nanping, at the end of a straight road, white houses appear on the rise of a quiet plateau at the foot of a large mountain. As you come into the village, you'll see two superb temples dedicated to the Ye (15C) and Cheng (16C) ancestors. Nanping is home to around 30 other temples, as well as the richly decorated Xiaoyanglou house (19C), whose three storeys dominate the village. The house is open to the public, as are its gardens.
