Tangmo, a village located in Huizhou District of Huangshan City, is another typical spot to explore the Huizhou dwellings culture. See: Map of Tangmo Village
An octagonal tri-eaved pavilion at the entrance to the village is of typical ancient style. Several minutes westwards is a memorial arch (Tongbao Hanlin Arch), which displays the grandeur and exquisite craftsmanship of ancient artisans.
Tan Gan Yuan Garden and its lakes in Tangmo is a must for each visitor for it is actually a microcosm of the charming scenery of the West Lake (a picturesque spot in Hangzhou). Right beside the entrance, a pair of tablets have fancy inscriptions, which record the building of the garden. A cobble pavement extends forwards to a great hall. The spirit tablets of two Qing officials are enshrined. After several minutes walk, the "Quegao Jingshe" - the grand main hall in the garden, exhibits fancy bonsai. A long corridor zigzags through the central yard for about one hundred meters. Further to north is another pavilion named "Jing Ting (Mirrior Pavilion)". On the marble parapets, pictures were engraved in relief. Also in the garden, inscriptions of the noted calligraphists lure many lovers of oriental culture.
Tangmo Village is a unique village of tranquility and inspiration famous for both its noticing natural landscapes and the historical and cultural glamour. Entering the village, visitors witness streets paralleling winding rivers, leading to nearly 100 Anhui-style residential houses of several hundred years scattered along both banks. Tanganxi Stream which runs through the village is about 1,000 meters (3,281 feet) long and has 13 stone bridges of various different shapes and designs. Among them is the distinctively constructed Gaoyang Bridge with roof. Sitting there to enjoy a cup of Chinese green tea makes visitors feel both physically relaxed and more spiritually aware.
