This grand building complex was first built in 1759 during the Qing Dynasty under the regime of Emperor Qianlong and was extended around 100 years later. The Guild Halls were originally built for the immigrants who moved here from Hunan, Hubei, Guangdong and Guangxi Provinces.

At the end of the Ming Dynasty and the beginning of the Qing Dynasty the population in Sichuan had declined dramatically and the rulers of that time ordered people living in the Hu and Guang areas to move here to cultivate the fertile land. This was called the Huguang Filling of Sichuan Movement. Historic records of that period and artifacts are on display and local operas are regularly held here.

Dong Shui Men is located just outside and is one of the most intact of the city’s old gates.

Location - 4 Zheng Street, Dong Shui Men, Yuzhong District, Chongqing (ˮ4)
