Heritage through lenses:Mount Lushan

An overview of Kuling. The town of Kuling is regarded by Hu Shi, one of China's most renowned thinkers, as evidence of Western cultural intrusion into China. As a Western commissioner, Li Deli first developed a villa district in one of Mount Lushan's valleys in the late 19th century as the best architects and planners were invited to participate in this project. Today, its residents remain true to their original lifestyle, serving as living proof of its cultural heritage.[Photo by Jia Yue for Chinadaily.com.cn]
