Shuiyu village is located in Nanjiao township, Fangshan district, 80 kilometers southwest of Beijing. Nestled deep in the surrounding mountains, the village was built during the Ming and Qing dynasties. With 600 houses and more than 100 sets of courtyard houses from the Ming and Qing dynasties, the cultural ecology of the village has been well maintained. In addition, an S-shaped ancient road made of bluestone runs through the entire village. Facing both north and south, the village is laid out in a circular shape, forming a unique architectural style.
