The Pian Yu Yi Zhi Monastery is one of the representatives of the Hui-style monastery design. There are guardians on both sides of the monastery to ensure peace and silence in the monastery.
The spacious courtyard of the monastery is lined with various buildings and a portico connecting them. Visitors are immersed in a world of silence and relaxation after the hustle and bustle of the small streets of Hongcun. Parts of the plant consist of stone buildings, others are made of wood. The monastery, like the village of Hongcun, has been a UNESCO monument since 2000.
