Pinghe County (simplified Chinese: 平和县; traditional Chinese: 平和縣; pinyin: Pínghé Xiàn; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Pêng-hô-koān) is a county of the prefecture-level city of Zhangzhou, in southern Fujian province, PRC.[1]

Administrative Division[edit]

The administrative centre or seat of Pinghe County is Xiaoxi (小溪) Town.

Towns (镇, zhen)[edit]

Most of Pinghe's old People's communes, after spending the 80s and even 90s as Townships, have been upgraded to Towns. Aside of Xiaoxi, there are now nine:[2]

  • Wenfeng (文峰)
  • Shange (山格
  • Nansheng (南胜)
  • Banzai (坂仔)
  • Anhou (安厚)
  • Daxi (大溪)
  • Jiufeng (九峰)
  • Xiazhai (霞寨)
  • Luxi (芦溪)
  • Guoqiang(国强)

Townships (乡, xiang)[edit]

There are five townships.

Economy[edit]

Tulou[edit]

Numerous Fujian Tulou, earth buildings of round, rectangular and other shapes, can be found within Pinghe County, primarily in its western part (viz., various villages of Luxi, Xiazhai, Jiufeng and Daxi Towns). One of them, the Xishuang Lou (西爽楼), located in Xi'an Village a few kilometers north of Xiazhai town center, has been described by some researchers as the "largest of the rectangular [tulou] in existence".[3] Unfortunately, only parts of the compound have survived to this day.[4]
