Recently, the Cultural Relics Management Institute of Dong'an County discovered Dunlundi in Shirui Village, Damiaokou Town, a well-preserved construction of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). The ancient building, covering an area of around 500 square meters, has a history of over 400 years and enjoys a great value of cultural relics for its unique architectural style, masonry-timber structure and exquisite design. Dun (the Chinese character "") stands for encouragement, Lun (the Chinese character "") for moral human relations, and Di (the Chinese character "") for mansion.
