Fujian tulou consists of 46 buildings constructed between the 15th and 20th centuries over 120 kilometers in the south-west of Fujian province, inland from the Taiwan Strait.

They are inscribed as exceptional examples of a building tradition and their function exemplifies a particular type of communal living and defensive organization.

In terms of their harmonious relationship with their environment, they are an outstanding example of human settlement.

Tulou was added to the World Heritage list on July 6, 2008.
