The Fujian Tulou are 46 earthen buildings that were made primarily for defense and as a place for communities to live together peacefully.

As the population grew in southeastern China, more conflict arose between the people. In response to this, the first tulous were built. The oldest tulou was built hundreds of years ago, back in 1308. They come in a variety of sizes, with the largest containing more than 400 rooms. The Fujian Tulou are the best examples that we have of tulou that have survived to this day.

The Fijian Tulou are still lived in today by the ancestors of those who originally built them, giving visitors a chance to see first-hand how these earthen homes have been used for hundreds of years.
