People with the surname Chen account for the largest population in Kinmen. Located at the downtown Houpu, Yingchuan Tang of Chen Ancestral House is the Headquarter of the Chen Family and its constructions started in 1904. The front gate is a magnificent stone-carved arch with the width of 3 intervals between 4 pillars, and the ancestral house itself is the post-and-lintel building with the wooden framework mixed with clay brick wall and stone walls.

It has the layout of two enclosed open courtyards and 9 beams with the width of 3 intervals. The roof was built with round green tiles, and most of the materials of stone sculptures are white rocks and limestone from Quanzhou. In addition, the partial wooden buildings have hollow open-work carvings and paintings.

To energize the land, Houpu 16 Literary Arts Special Zone was planned with the combination of historic appearances and cultural creativity; inside the zone, a visitor center provides visitors with guiding information and the shopping street presents the integration of history and modernization, which brings abundant interest and fun.

    i went here at night & day. quite locally. strolling at night would be more relaxing but historical building is hard to take picture. and it has free tour to walk around this area also tell story of each place. at day time, it is local market, lot of local people. they are busy but nice. love this place
