Houses in Dongba township combine the architectural styles of Tibetan, Naxi and other ethnic groups in China. Dongba township was once an important trading hub on the ancient Tea Horse Road that linked Yunnan to the neighboring Tibet Autonomous Region. The prosperity of commerce and exchanges of cultures encourage residents to apply different architectural styles and skills to their dwellings.
