Likeng, village as cultural heritage

Likeng village, located in the Tuochuan township of Wuyuan county, in Jiangxi province, was once known as Liyuan during a time when China was much younger.

The historical village is located 45 kilometers northeast of Wuyuan county and was established during the late Song Dynasty at a time when reading was the prevailing activity among the villagers. The people who lived there advocated the doctrines of Zhu Xi, so the village is often referred to as the "Origin of Neo-Confucianism" by scholars. [Photo/China.org.cn]
