24 Chinese traditional festival “Dragon Boat Festival”-Ancient dwellings rebuilt into Duanwu Festival gallery

There is a place called Qu village located in Zhanghua city, Taiwan province that has over two hundred people who have the surname Qu, and who claim to be descendants of China’s ancient great poet Qu Yuan. It is one of the seldom known Qu villages.

In Taiwan, dragon boat races will be held in many places during Dragon Boat Festival, but it’s a rare sight to see temples commemorating Qu Yuan. In 1963, in order to commemorate Qu Yuan, villagers from the Qu village in Zhanghua made a statue of Qu Yuan for sacrifice in the Taihe Temple.

Since then, the descendants of the Qu family have come to worship their ancestors during every Dragon Boat Festival, and Taihe Temple is now called “Quyuan Temple”.

For residents at the Qu village, Zigui county in Hubei province is actually their ancestral home. The four characters “Lin Huai Yan Pai” are inscribed on the lintels of the doors at each old home in the village. According to legend, it is believed Qu Yuan once lived near the Huai River, and these words serve as reminders to the villagers to never forget their ancestors.

Prior to storing water at the Three Gorges Dam in Hubei province, a cultural relics protection zone was built at the Mount Phoenix scenic area in Zigui county, located across from the dam.

Out of all the relics, at least 10 ancient dwellings in Qingtan from the Three Gorges were moved and then rebuilt according to their original design.

The reconstructed dwellings serve as a folkway gallery for the Dragon Boat Festival, a traditional customs museum in Qingtan, and a dragon boat museum, which preserves and moves forward traditional architecture along with folk cultures that possess unique local characteristics.
