Goulan Yao Village is a fortress-style Yao Village surrounded by mountains. It is located in Lanxi Yaozu Township, Jiangyong County. The village has preserved many houses from the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The village is full of old community centers, bridges and pavilions. There are large-scale monuments such as the Panwang Temple, Xianggong Temple, Tiger Temple and Guangong Temple. Lanes made of the blue-stone slabs line the entire village. The raised horse-head walls surrounding the houses are painted or brick-carved, dotted with small blue-stone lattice windows, thus forming distinctive streetscapes. The traditional mud-washing festivals in the village have been recognized as a provincial folk tradition.
