What travelers say:

The ancient village of Zomatang is hidden in Maoshan Village in the southern suburbs of Ningbo. With a history of more than a thousand years, there are many ancient buildings in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and the folk customs are simple. Known as the first village of Chinese scholars. According to historical records, it was built in the Duangong period of the Northern Song Dynasty (988 AD), when the Chen family moved here from Changzhou, Jiangsu, and lived there for more than a thousand years. At that time, Changzhou Jinshi Chen Jin was appointed the prefect of Mingzhou, and he was buried in Maoshan after his death. His son was his father guarding the mausoleum and took his family to settle in Zumatang. He became the ancestor of the people of Zomatang today, and has been passed down for 38 generations. The Chen family tree, which is kept in Ningbo Tianyi Pavilion today, clearly records the changes of this family over the millennia.
