Longmen Ancient Town situates on the southern bank of Fuchun River in Fuyang, about 50 kilometers away from Hangzhou's city center. The name, Longmen, literally the dragon gate in Chinese.
About 90 per cent of the 7,000 inhabitants here are surnamed Sun. They are the descendants of Sun Quan. They have been settling here for many centuries, so old architecture in Longmen Ancient Town is best preserved of similar kinds in Yangtze River Delta. They have made a kind of culture of their own too. The ancient and rural atmosphere is still maintained. This invaluable cultural heritage has attracted television stations and journalists at home and abroad.
