The village is a collection of different styles of pavilions, buildings, bridges, temples and folk residences, the exquisite craft and marvelous wood, stone and brick carving exemplify the quintessence of the Hui school architectural style, that is why Chengkan was dubbed "Museum of ancient Chinese architectural art".
