*These photo were taken during summer 2010*
Sheng wu lou (縄武楼) is one of my favorite tulous (Hakka earthen building)
among the Fujian tulou cluster (福建土楼) that I visited during this trip.
The whole architecture were ornate with beautiful wood cravings
but it’s really sad to see most of it in a really bad state now.
No one is living there now except an old couple.
The other Tulous (Hakka earthen buildings) that I visited during this trip
were quite well preserved but not this one.
I wonder why?
It’s such a waste to see such a beautiful architecture
became derelict over time…
