Malan village, which means "horse stable" in English, had a history of keeping horses that dates back to the Ming dynasty.

The ancient buildings in Malan village are made of stone and mud. When building and repairing houses in the village, people try their best to maintain their original appearance. There is also an exhibition hall, a row of old houses, as well as 12 gate bridges in the west of the village, with each stone arch leading to an ancient courtyard. In summer, the spring stream flowing through the village creates an idyllic scenery that harks back to how it may have looked in ancient times.
