Prior to storing water at the Three Gorges Dam in Hubei province, a cultural relics protection zone was built at the Mount Phoenix scenic area in Zigui county, located across from the dam.

Out of all the relics, at least 10 ancient dwellings in Qingtan from the Three Gorges were moved and then rebuilt according to their original design.

The reconstructed dwellings serve as a folkway gallery for the Dragon Boat Festival, a traditional customs museum in Qingtan, and a dragon boat museum, which preserves and moves forward traditional architecture along with folk cultures that possess unique local characteristics.
