Huilongzhuang, a mysterious and low-key “luxury house” hidden in the mountains, is billed as Chongqing’s version of Forbidden City, with thousands of treasures inside.

It comprises three rows of courtyards, with the building area covering more than 20,000 square meters.

Its skeleton consists of 328 stone columns, each weighing 5,000 kg, making it more difficult to build at that time.

However, it is still unknown where these pillars came from and how they were put up several centuries ago.
