She was appointed as the honored daughter of Dowager Ci Xi, who was the mother of emperor in Qing dynasty. She started to enlarge the village when she got this honor. The village was imitated like Beijing Forbidden city. But many years after, there are only some old buildings left, such as an old compound dwelling house and a wood and brick making theatre where a rural school is located.
