As China's largest private garden in Northern style, the Chang Family Manor is the private mansion of Chang family. The 1,000-house manor today is only one fourth of its original size.

The Chang Family Manor is a witness to the family's past glory and a showcase of traditional architecture and artworks of brick and stone sculptures. The inscriptions on these sculptures are verses, adages or patterns of flowers like plums, orchids and chrysanthemum. These sculptures are considered the most elaborate examples of the building art in Qing Dynasty.
